Open Access Publishing Fees

The Open Access model is applied to all of our publications and is designed to eliminate subscriptions and pay-per-view fees. This approach ensures free, immediate access to full text versions of your research.

As a gold Open Access publisher, an Open Access Publishing Fee is payable on acceptance following peer review of the manuscript. In return, we provide high quality publishing services and exclusive benefits for all contributors. IntechOpen is the trusted publishing partner of over 128,000 international scientists and researchers.

The Open Access Publishing Fee (OAPF) is payable only after your full chapter, monograph or Compacts monograph is accepted for publication.

OAPF Publishing Options

  • 1,400     GBP Chapter - Edited Volume
  • 850         GBP Chapter - Book Series Topic (Annual Volume)
  • 10,000  GBP Monograph - Long Form
  • 4,000    GBP Compacts Monograph - Short Form

*These prices do not include Value-Added Tax (VAT). Residents of European Union countries need to add VAT based on the specific rate in their country of residence. Institutions and companies registered as VAT taxable entities in their own EU member state will not pay VAT as long as provision of the VAT registration number is made during the application process. This is made possible by the EU reverse charge method.

Services included are:

  • An online manuscript tracking system to facilitate your work
  • Personal contact and support throughout the publishing process from your dedicated Author Service Manager
  • Assurance that your manuscript meets the highest publishing standards
  • English language copyediting and proofreading, including the correction of grammatical, spelling, and other common errors
  • XML Typesetting and pagination - web (PDF, HTML) and print files preparation
  • Discoverability - electronic citation and linking via DOI
  • Permanent and unrestricted online access to your work

See our full list of services here.

What isn't covered by the Open Access Publishing Fee?

If your manuscript:

  • Exceeds 20 pages (for chapters in Edited Volumes), an additional fee of 40 GBP per page will be required
  • If a manuscript requires Heavy Editing or Language Polishing, this will incur additional fees.

Your Author Service Manager will inform you of any items not covered by the OAPF and provide exact information regarding those additional costs before proceeding.
