Article Processing Charge
The CJGIM welcomes original research submissions, book reports, abstracts and other articles. Articles in the CJGIM will be subject to an Article Processing Charge (APC) of $750 (USD) for each manuscript that passes peer review and is accepted for publication; the APC will be waived for authors who are CSIM Members and Associates (with dues currently paid) or who are submitting original research and review articles. Please indicate in the Private Notes box on the User Profile page if you are in one of the above categories.
The APC is billed upon acceptance of an article. There are no additional charges for colour, length, figures, or other elements. Letters to the Editor and select invited articles are not charged an APC.
Authors living in countries not considered “least developed” as per the following list of countries who do not have the ability to pay the APC may be eligible for a reduced APC. Please contact the publisher directly to make a formal request at firstname.lastname@example.org.
