OA Processing Charges

Book Processing Charges (BPCs) and Chapter Processing Charges (CPCs): Payment of the BPC or CPC fee (directly to the publisher) by the author or a funding body is not required until AFTER the manuscript has gone through the full double-blind peer review process and the Editor(s)-in-Chief at his/her/their full discretion has/have decided to accept the manuscript based on the results of the double-blind peer review process.

Please note that IGI Global cannot schedule the manuscript for publication or publish the manuscript until payment has been received.It is also important to note that in scholarly publishing, utilizing an open access book’s resources and time with no intent to pay the open access BPC or CPC if the manuscript is accepted following the peer review process is considered to be unethical and exploitative.

What Does IGI Global's Open Access BPC and CPC Cover? In the traditional subscription-based model, the cost to the publisher to produce each manuscript is covered by the revenue generated by book sales. Under OA, all the manuscripts are published under a Creative Commons (CC BY) license; therefore, the authors or funding body will pay a one-time BPC or CPC to offset the costs of all of the activities associated with the publication of the article manuscript, including:

  • Digital tools used to support the manuscript management and review process
  • Typesetting, formatting and layout
  • Online hosting
  • Submission of the journal's content to numerous abstracts, directories, and indexes
  • Third-party software (e.g. plagiarism checks)
  • Editorial support which includes manuscript tracking, communications, submission guideline checks, and communications with authors and reviewers
  • All promotional support and activities which include metadata distribution, press releases, promotional communications, web content, ads, fliers, brochures, postcards, etc. for the journal and its published contents
  • The fact that all published articles will be freely accessible and able to be posted and disseminated widely by the authors
