Pay What You Want: Starting in March 2018, SynOpen implements a “Pay What You Want” model for article publication fees. This means that once your manuscript has been accepted for publication and it comes to paying the publication fee, you decide how much to pay. We are giving you the choice to pay any price you feel appropriate. Please contact our helpdesk with any questions.
There are no submission charges.
