Automatic Article Publication Charge waivers and discounts will be given to authors from countries on the Waivers and Discounts List. Authors should submit a waiver or discount request during the submission of their article.

Taxes on publication charges

The stated APC does not include any relevant taxes. Authors and Institutions resident in any of the EU countries that participate in VAT that are not registered for VAT will have TO ADD THE APPROPRIATE Value-Added Tax (VAT, at their local relevant rate).

If the Author/Institution is VAT registered, by providing their VAT registration number a tax invoice can be accommodated under the reverse charge. (This is a mechanism where VAT would not need to be added to the payment). The VAT registered customer will account for the VAT when they prepare their VAT return as both an “in” and an “out”, producing a nil effect.
