How Can I Pay to Publish in an Open Access Journal?
Open Access journals fall into two categories: fee based and no fee journals. In cases of fee based journals either the author, the author's institution or the source of the author's research funding pays to cover the cost of publication.
Researchers are encouraged to consider open access options at the beginning of their projects in order to set aside and ensure funding for eventual publication.
