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.

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
