We want to make sure our authors are aware that the APS has approved a restructuring of Journal Publication Costs. What does this mean for our authors? Well, effective January 1, 2016, changes to the APS research journals’ author fees include:
- Submission fees will be eliminated.
- Page charges for AuthorChoice (program allowing articles to be freely available on publication) will be eliminated. Fees for participating in the program remain.
- Color fees for non-members will be reduced from $400 to $200 per figure.
- Increase of page charges from $75 to $85 per page.
The Editors hope that the elimination of submission fees and reductions in color fees will encourage authors to submit their best work to AJP-Lung!
