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

Reviews & Statements

"I am proud to be among those chosen in the editorial board for the International Journal of System Dynamics Applications. The integrity and seriousness of IJSDA's peer review process is unquestionable. I have found that the papers submitted are of high quality and the blind review process provides highly useful feedback to the authors. I would like to encourage IJSDA to continue the good work."

– Dr. Tsung-Chih Lin, Professor, Department of Electronic Engineering, Feng-Chia University, Taiwan

The International Journal of System Dynamics Applications is providing a professional and peer-reviewed publishing venue for researchers. The service that IJSDA offers is both valuable and visionary. I enjoy serving in the editorial board and appreciate the opportunity to revise some interesting recent works or to publish research. The founder of IJSDA should be commended for great services they are rendering.

– Valentina E. Balas. IEEE Senior Member, Aurel Vlaicu University of Arad, Romania

It is heartening to note that the galaxy of academicians and able administrators behind the International Journal of System Dynamics Application (IJSDA), in a very short span of time, has truly justified with its mission to provide a deeper understanding of the dynamic behaviour of complex systems by promoting the development of System Dynamics (SD) and the interchange of learning and research in related fields. As it is evident from the recent global trend of convergence of technologies and research disciplines, systems thinking has emerged as a true tans-disciplinary way of creating a better world and worldliness for resolving some of the most intriguing questions facing the humanity. I have all the sound reasoning to trust that IJSDA will establish its unique space in the field of systems thinking and dynamic modelling in this novel pursuit sooner than later.
