The journal rigorously improves its services in order to be indexed in the top venues. Therefore, the existing copyediting and production systems will change soon. We are changing our legacy pricing model of delegating manuscript copyediting/layout-adaptation efforts to authors so that they do not have to pay for these services. This change will help us to improve the quality of copyediting and also extend the galley production to not only PDF but also XML, HTML, and EPUB as well.
Starting from 1st September 2023, we will not provide any optional Template Support Fee services anymore. Instead, the Article Processing Charge will cover all the copyediting and templating services. Thus, authors will not be asked to adapt their articles according to our template as this service will be provided by the publisher.
The new article processing charge will be 109 GBP (instead of 55 GBP). All articles submitted starting from 1st September 2023 will be subject to an updated article processing charge.
