Submission of articles to the Journal is free. However, for accepted articles there is an article processing charge to cover production and administrative costs (that would otherwise be recovered through journal sales and subscriptions for a restricted access journal).
The submitting/senior author must confirm at the time of manuscript submission that they have sufficient funds to cover the article processing charges, if their manuscript is accepted for publication. The charges become payable as soon as the manuscript has been accepted in principle by the Editor-in-Chief following peer-review. We may ask the authors to pay the Basic Open-Access Article Processing Fee before their article is processed any further.
