Article Processing Charges (APCs) for Publishing in AWP Journals.
AWP publishes all its journals in full open access format. The scientific community and the general public have, for free, unlimited and immediate access to all content published in our journals as soon as it is published on the Internet. This means that AWP does not receive any income from selling subscriptions to print or view online versions of its journals or from charging "pay-per-view" fees. Therefore, AWP needs to defray its editorial and production costs by collecting article processing charges (APCs) from authors' institutes or research funding bodies. AWP is committed to keeping its open access publication charges at a minimum level. AWP's current charges—if calculated per page—are much lower than the revenues per published page generated by traditional, subscription-based academic publishers. AWP only sends the invoice for article processing charges (APCs) if a manuscript has been accepted for publication. The acceptance of a manuscript is based on the outcome of the peer-review procedure.
English Editing and Formatting
If the feedback from reviewers request further English Editing for readability, an extra English editing charge (£200) will be applied. We encourage non-native English speaking authors to send their manuscripts to an English speaking colleague or a professional English editing service prior to submission. AWP can provide this service via the following link http://www.archyworld.com/english. If you use an English Editing service that provides a confirmation certificate, please send a copy to the Editorial Office.
Authors should carefully follow the instructions for authors and use the MS Word template files on the journal's webpage of instructions for authors, otherwise reformatting surcharges maybe applied.
Article Types are Published Free of Charge
Editorial items (Editorials, Corrections, Additions, Retractions, Comments, etc.) are published free of charge. Article processing charges (APCs) only apply to primary content: articles, ccommunications, reviews and conference papers, etc.
Bank, Credit/Debit Cards and other Fees
We will attach a payment list with manuscript acceptance email. In the payment list, you can chose one payment way. The options are credit and debit cards, PayPal, wire transfers and check. We will send you an invoice with security payment link or bank information.
Credit/Debit Cards are preferred payment method without extra fees. For wire transfers, we ask the customer to pay the fees for both the sender and the recipient bank, so that AWP can receive the full invoiced amount. If you wish to pay by check, we will add £10 check fees in your invoice. If you wish to pay by PayPal, we will add 4% PayPal fees in your invoice.
