OA-fee - Article processing charge (APC)
The OA-fee consists of a base fee (€140 per article) and a page fee (€ 119 per published page) and is
charged for papers up to and including 16 pages. OA-fees for papers exceeding 16 pages in length are negotiated
individually. The fee includes all applicable taxes.
In cases, where the editors decide that language editing is required, a language editing charge of € 12.00 per typeset page (plus VAT, where applicable) is levied.
Fee example: The fee for a hypothetical paper of 6 typeset pages (which does not require language editing) amounts to €140 + €119 * 6 = € 714.
OA-fees are invoiced and payable before a paper is published online.
