Article Processing Charges
Why do we charge APCs?

Public Science Framework Journals are Open Access. Open access, enabling far greater distribution of an author's work than the traditional subscription-based publishing model, allows all interested readers to view, download, print, and redistribute any article without a subscription, which can greatly increase the impact of their work. There is hence no income at Public Science Framework that comes from selling any forms of subscriptions to this electronic version of journal or from pay-per-view fees. In order to cover the costs induced by editorial procedures, routine operation of the journals, processing of manuscripts through peer-reviews, and the provision and maintenance of a publication infrastructure, the publication costs of an article are paid from an author's research budget, or by their supporting institution, in the form of Article Processing Charges. These Article Processing Charges replace subscription charges and allow publishers to make the full-text of every published article freely available to all interested readers.

From April 1, 2017 to May 31, 2017, authors can enjoy the privilege to publish paper free in all journals. After discount, the new APCs are listed as follows:
