Article Processing Charges

Open access publishing does have its costs. Since PAGEPress does not have subscription charges for its research content it can defray publishing costs from the Article Processing Charges. This is because PAGEPress believes that the interests of the scientific community can best be served by an immediate, worldwide, unlimited, open access to the full text of research articles. Information regarding authors’ payment are not made available to editors and reviewers ensuring that they cannot be influenced in their selection of papers for publication by payment conditions or limitations.

The Article Processing Charge for publication in this journal is EUR 600,00 (plus VAT, if applicable).

Please note that VAT tax has to be added to the APC: 
- European Union PRIVATE customers must add the standard rate (4%) of VAT tax. 
- European Institutions and Organizations paying the fee on behalf of Authors can avoid payment of VAT by providing their VAT registration number.  
- Private or public ITALIAN customers (individuals, universities, hospitals, other organizations) must ALWAYS add VAT (IVA) at standard rate (4%)

- Outside the European Union, individuals and organizations should not add the VAT tax.

When and how to pay

Upon editorial acceptance of an article, the corresponding author will be notified that payment is due.

We advise prompt payment as we are unable to publish accepted articles until full payment has been received.

Payment can be made by one of the following methods:

  1. PayPal – this is the most recommended and secure payment system. It enables you to pay without sharing your financial information and getting your payment receipt immediately.
  2. Credit card - The form to be filled and returned either via e-mail or via fax is available here: We will we send a receipt once payment has been processed.
  3. Bank transfer - payment is due within 30 days of the manuscript receiving editorial acceptance. We will we send an invoice once payment has been processed.

Please be informed that payments carry an administrative charge of € 50 (tax included).
Italian institutions/organizations belonging to the Public Administration are not subjected to the administrative charge.


According to the United Nations list of Least Developed Countries (LCDs) available from:, Authors coming from those countries are entitled to ask for a discount. A “Formal Request for discount” has to be forwarded to the Managing Editor, after receiving the acceptance letter. The Editorial Committee will then evaluate the merits of each individual case. Any other informal request (such as comments at the moment of submission, or made in the covering letter of the revised version) will not be taken into consideration.
