Article Processing Charges
Article Processing Charge (APC):

Payment of the APC 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. 

What Does IGI Global's Open Access APC Cover?

In the traditional subscription-based model, the cost to the publisher to produce each article is covered by the revenue generated by journal subscriptions. Under OA, all the articles are published under a Creative Commons (CC BY) license; therefore, the authors or funding body will pay a one-time article processing charge (APC) 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
  • Professional line-by-line English language copy editing and proofreading*

*This service is only performed on article manuscripts with fully paid (not discounted or waived) APC fees.

APC Subsidizing and Funding

To assist researchers in covering the costs of the APC in OA publishing, there are various sources of OA funding. Additionally, unlike many other publishers, IGI Global offers flexible subsidies, 100% Open Access APC funding, discounts, and more. Learn More

Open Access Funding Resources
IGI Global recognizes that many researchers may not know where to begin when searching for OA funding opportunities. IGI Global recently launched an Open Access Funding Resources page for researchers to browse. This page provides a comprehensive list of OA funding sources available for researchers to secure funds for their various OA publications.

Reviews & Statements

The International Journal of Swarm Intelligence Research (IJSIR) serves as a vehicle to facilitate and promote the knowledge sharing among swarm intelligence researchers in the field, ranging from algorithm developments to real-world applications. As a new journal in the field of evolutionary computation, IJSIR has built its reputation from its first two years of existence. Papers published are all well focused with novelty to contribute. The Editor-in-Chief assisted by the editorial board has done a marvelous job in uplifting the highest standard in every aspect of journal publication.

– Dr. Gary Yen, Oklahoma State University, USA and President of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society

By publishing research papers of a constantly high standard, IJSIR has established itself as a leading forum in the area of computational intelligence. It is a must to read for those who want to follow recent developments in swarm intelligence.

– Dr. Qingfu Zhang, University of Essex, UK

Since its inception, the International Journal of Swarm Intelligence Research (IJSIR) has managed to position itself as a leading publication in computational intelligence research. IJSIR is, indeed, a very valuable resource for obtaining up-to-date information on the recent developments in nature-inspired optimization for my research group and for myself. Its reading is highly recommended to anyone interested in doing research in this area.

– Professor Carlos A. Coello Coello, Depto. de Computación, CINVESTAV-IPN, México.
