Papers in i-Perception are be freely accessible without subscription; the costs of publication are be paid by authors supported by their funding bodies or institutions. i-Perception is an Open Access/Author Pays journal.
If a paper is submitted according to i-Perception specifications (see How Can I Submit, above) it will be charged at £35 (US$54) a printed page (by "printed page" we mean a page of the final published PDF version of the paper). Papers not submitted to our specifications will be charged at £70 (US$110) a page. There is a minimum charge of £200 (US$320) for any paper. (Costs current as of 1 September 2012.)
Journal Club (formerly, i-Comment) charges. In order to fast-track the publication of Journal Club papers and their responses and to keep the author charges to a minimum, they receive minimal editing and proofs will not be sent to authors, so it is vital that authors submit in their final publication materials a polished, ready-to-publish version of their paper. Authors are asked to keep their papers short (no more than 1500 words). For Journal Club papers there is no minimum charge (of £200), as with other i-Perception papers. Instead, they are charged £50 per page. If authors of the paper being reviewed wish to respond but do not have funds to cover the publication fees, please consult the editors before submission.
If, in the opinion of the reviewers, editors, or publishers it is felt that special editorial work is required on the language of the paper the authors will be given the option of having that work done themselves or having it carried out by the experienced editorial staff at Pion. In the latter case a further charge will be payable and an estimate for that charge will be given to the authors in advance.
Where the submitting author is based within the European Union these charges will be subject to the appropriate level of UK value-added tax (VAT), currently 20% (January 2010). Payment will be invoiced at the time of publication.
Yes. Though some academic journals publish freely available material, they do not always meet the criteria to qualify for open access funding from certain grant-awarding bodies. For example, they might not deposit the final manuscripts in certain databases, such as PMC/UKPMC.
