Open Access Publishing Fees

The Open Access model, which we apply to all of our publications, eliminates subscriptions and pay-per-view fees and ensures free, immediate access to full text versions of your research.

As a gold Open Access publisher, we require the payment of the Open Access Publishing Fee for accepted manuscripts, and in return provide high quality publishing services and exclusive author benefits for all of our contributors. This is why IntechOpen is the trusted publishing partner of over 116,000 international scientists and researchers.

The Open Access Publishing Fee is payable only after your full chapter is accepted for publication.

Services included are:

  • Online manuscript tracking system to facilitate your work
  • Personal contact and support during the publishing process
  • Assurance that your manuscript is in line with publishing standards
  • English language copyediting & proofreading - correction of grammatical, spelling, & other common errors
