Journal Publication Fees 

Our publications are full open access. The publishing costs are to be payed ideally by the institutions (E.g. Universities, Libraries, Local Authorities) that, have proper funding and, benefit from the fact that their affiliated authors publish in rigorously peer reviewed, indexed, internationally recognised publications.

​APC is mandatory for all approved papers. With the following exceptions:
- Authors affiliated with the Institutions that are Members of UC R&D Consortium;
- Members of the publication Committees and other Invited Authors.
(Invited authors can be invited for merit or/and justified payment incapacity).

The payment must be processed after the paper acceptance for publication.
