The Article Publication Charge is waived for accepted manuscripts from 2020 - 2021. The journal will operate on a Pay What You Want model after the waiver period. This means that once your manuscript has been accepted for publication, you decide how much to pay. We are giving you the choice to pay any price you feel appropriate and there is no minimum amount. Watch our video about Pay What You What (click here for Chinese).
