What is APC? An Article Processing Charge (APC), also known as a publication fee, is a fee which is sometimes charged to authors to make a work available in an open access journal. This fee is usually paid by an author's institution or research funder rather than by the author themselves.
Why should I pay? All articles published in our journals are open access and freely available online, immediately upon publication. This is made possible by an article processing charge (APC) that covers the range of publishing services we provide, such as editorial costs, any costs of administrating the peer review system and editorial office, copyediting (i.e. manuscript preparation), journal production (i.e. layout), open access online publication and hosting, crossref doi fee, indexing and achieving, and customer services. As such, the cost of publishing is recovered upfront through APCs rather than from subscribers or readers. The APC, payable when your manuscript is editorially accepted and before publication, is charged to you or your funder, institution or employer.
When should I pay and who is responsible for payment? Upon editorial acceptance of an article, the corresponding author (you) will be notified that payment is due. We advise prompt payment as we are unable to publish accepted articles until payment has been received. As the corresponding author of the manuscript you are responsible for making or arranging the payment (for instance, via your institution) upon editorial acceptance of the manuscript.
What the amount I need to pay? Article processing charge (APC) to publish an article is based on authorship and nationality, but additional fee applied for article consisted of more than five authors. Journal BiNET believes that scientific works should be available at a cost which does not become burden to authors or funding authority. Fee is considered carefully and it is always nominal, for specific rates, please read more at APC details. Editorial office possess the right to exert firm control on alter in terms of APC conditions.
