Article Processing Charges
EDP Sciences supports the transition to Open Access for many of their publications. In this context and to facilitate this transition, EDP Sciences proposes the Liberty APC, a model of "Pay What You Want", for the publication of accepted articles in EPJ Nonlinear Biomedical Physics.
This means that each author is invited to fix his/her own level of Article processing charges (APCs) based on his/her individual situation regarding funding for his/her research and publications and other financial circumstances.
At the occasion of the transfer of EPJ Nonlinear Biomedical Physics EDP Sciences to is pleased to introduce this model for all articles submitted in 2016 and 2017.
For all articles submitted in 2016 and 2017 the APC will be at the discretion of each author (Pay what you want). The full APC that the journal aims to attain in the future is 1000 € for all articles published in this journal. Choosing an amount of 0€ is allowed in 2016 and 2017. However choosing an APC above this amount will be a clear statement by the author to support the dissemination of science as widely as possible through open access publishing.
A prestigious Editorial Board is heading EPJ Nonlinear Biomedical Physics, carrying out rigorous and independent peer review. Financial support for the journal is immediately used for maintaining and improving:
- an up-to-date infrastructure for the article submission and evaluation process,
- the publication of its content using various formats adapted to different reading habits,
- tools for indexation and discoverability,
- and establishing long-term content access and preservation.
The author of an accepted article is invited to select from different amounts the APC he is willing to be invoiced. After selecting his/her amount, the author will receive the corresponding invoice for publication of the accepted article.
