Article-processing charges

Open access publishing is not without costs. Journal of the European Optical Society-Rapid Publications therefore levies an article-processing charge of £1,060/US$1,660/€1,350 for each article accepted for publication. If the corresponding author's institution is a Member, the cost of the article-processing charge is covered by the membership, and no further charge is payable. In the case of authors whose institutions are Supporter Members, however, a discounted article-processing charge is payable by the author. We routinely waive charges for authors from low-income countries. For other countries, article-processing charge waivers or discounts are granted on a case-by-case basis to authors with insufficient funds. Authors can request a waiver or discount during the submission process. For further details, see our article-processing charge page.

Members of EOS can get a discount on the article-processing charge (APC) when submitting to JEOS:RP.
