Revision as of 12:50, 8 January 2009

It would be great to have an overview of publication fees and processing time (average editors response time, peer review,..). Please add to the list.

Articles on the topic

  • Image:2stars.png "PNAS Introduces Open Access Publishing Option" 2004! David Goodman, LIU [1]
"The average current cost of producing articles roughly seems to be $1500-$4000 for nonprofit publishers and $3000-$8000 for commercial (based on their own estimates in the UK hearings--I am deliberately using very wide ranges to accomodate all opinions)."
  • Image:1star.png "The costs and benefits of library site licenses to academic journals" 2004 [2]
Table 1: Mean institutional price per page for journals in Neuroscience in 1997: $0.89 (for profit), $0.10 (nonprofit)
  • Image:1star.png "Who Pays for Open Access?" PLoS Biology, 2004 [3]
"$1,700 in page charges that the average PNAS author already pays"

"In the EMBO Journal, for example, authors are allowed six pages of text free, but are then charged $200 per page beyond that. A review of recent issues shows that almost all authors exceed six pages, voluntarily paying on average over $800 to publish their articles."
