Payment of Publication Fees
The payment option in the manuscript management system is disabled by default for each manuscript. The payment option for a manuscript is only enabled when the manuscript has been accepted for publication. Thus, authors are unable to make payment unless their manuscript has been reviewed and accepted for publication.
After a manuscript has been reviewed and accepted by an editor, the payment option is enabled. An invoice is also sent to the corresponding author.
Please contact Accounts Unit ([email protected]) for information regarding fees and payments.
