Waivers and Discounts

For authors publishing in ELSYA journals, it offers waivers and discounts to corresponding authors based in developing countries.

To ensure that editorial decisions are never influenced by ability to pay, it is ELSYA policy that editors of open access journals are not involved in correspondence with authors regarding payment of Article Publication Charges (APCs). The automatic waiver system will be managed by administrative staff not involved in decisions regarding article acceptance. We ask authors not to discuss any issues concerning payment with editors.

In addition to the Research4Life countries listed below, some journals may offer additional waiver initiatives for APCs. These additional APC waivers will be managed by the editors and may be discussed with them.
