SCIREA Journal of Health
Why do we charge APCs?
SCIREA Journals are Open Access. Open access, enabling far greater distribution of an author's
work than the traditional subscription-based publishing model, allows all interested readers to
view, download, print, and redistribute any article without a subscription, which can greatly
increase the impact of their work. There is hence no income at SCIREA that comes from selling
any forms of subscriptions to this electronic version of journal or from pay-per-view fees. In
order to cover the costs induced by editorial procedures, routine operation of the journals,
processing of manuscripts through peer-reviews, and the provision and maintenance of a
publication infrastructure, the publication costs of an article are paid from an author's
research budget, or by their supporting institution, in the form of Article Processing Charges.
These Article Processing Charges replace subscription charges and allow publishers to make the
full-text of every published article freely available to all interested readers.
What do the article-processing charges pay for?
1. Editorial procedures
2. Immediate, worldwide open access to the full article text
3. Processing of manuscripts through peer-reviews
4. Preparation in various formats for online publication
5. Enabling electronic citation in other journals that are available electronically
6. Routine operation of the journals
7. The provision and maintenance of a publication infrastructure
