InTechOpen Compacts

InTechOpen Compacts present a mid-length publishing format which bridges the gap between journal articles, book chapters, and monographs and covers content across all scientific disciplines.

Compacts are the preferred publishing option for brief research reports on new topics, in-depth case studies, dissertations, or essays exploring new ideas, issues or broader topics on the subject at hand.

Without sacrificing the quality of carefully edited and produced peer reviewed content, Compacts are published as part of InTechOpen’s book collection but on faster schedules, typically 4-6 weeks after acceptance. With an average of 132,000 visitors per week, publishing in Compacts guarantees high visibility and international content sharing. As a fully Open Access publisher, the utilization of a CC BY NC 4.0 license means that other researchers will never have to pay permission fees and can adapt, use, and further build upon the material published in Compacts, eliminating any barriers to the further development of scientific research.

2,000 EUR Compacts Monograph - Short Form (Starting From)

The final price depends on the volume of the publication and includes: project management, editorial and peer review services, technical editing, language copyediting, cover design and book layout, book promotion and ISBN assignment.

The price does not include Value-Added Tax (VAT). Residents of European Union countries need to add VAT based on their specific country rate. Institutions and companies, outside of Croatia, registered as VAT taxable entities in their own EU member state, will not pay VAT by providing IN TECH with their VAT registration number. This is made possible by the EU reverse charge method.


We feel that financial barriers should never prevent researchers from publishing their research. Take a look at our Open Access Funding page to explore funding opportunities and learn more about how you can finance your InTechOpen publication.
