Publication Fee

In order to keep ETASR open access and to manage the various costs associated with handling and editing of the submitted manuscripts and the Journal management and publication in general, a publication fee for each article accepted for publication has been set.

Our Standard Publication Fee (6 pages manuscripts) is 480.00 (EUR)*
*plus VAT if applicable

Please note:
1) The Standard Publication Fee covers a standard six page manuscript. For every additional page an extra fee of 80 EURO per page will be charged. 

2) For Business-to-Consumer (B2C) services (i.e. when the customer is a person/consumer and not a business/institution) and for and for business-to-business (B2B) services when your business is based in Greece, the fee charged by us, will be increased by the Greek Value-Added Tax (VAT) according to Greek law and Council Directive 2006/112/EC. The Greek VAT is currently 24%. 

3) In case your institution pays directly for our services (B2B transaction) and your institution is not based in Greece and your institution has a Tax Identification Number (TIN) and it is not exempted from tax payments (i.e. your institution pays VAT in your country), then our fee may not be charged with the VAT tax but the VAT charge can be accounted to your institution via reverse charge. In that case, we will require an official statement/letter (Payment Commitment) from your institution accepting to pay the fee and stating all their legal information (title, address, TIN etc).  

4) ETASR currently offers a 10% discount on its standard publication fee for each completed review, as a token of appreciation for the time and effort invested by our reviewers in their reviews. For more information and instructions, visit our Reviewer Rewards page.

5) A partial waiver of author fees may also be decided by the editor in case of lack of funding, excessive length of submitted manuscript or other sound reasons provided by the author upon submission. The corresponding author has to declare that a waiver is requested upon the submission of the paper in the Comments to the Editor box. The exact amount has to be be stated and a solid justification has to be provided. Authors can not submit multiple waiver requests within the same year. A waiver will be denied if these rules are not followed.

6) Traditional bank transfer may take several weeks depending on the number of correspondent/intermediary banks used, the countries involved, the currency etc. The bank expenses required by the sender also varies. We have no control over these factors (you should check them with your bank).

7) In some cases, banks may even cancel transactions between certain countries due to laws in certain countries that prohibit such transactions or due to their internal rules. Although this is a rare case, please note that we have no control over that either (you should check them with your bank or ... simply perform a google search before trying).

8) Several of our clients choose to use alternative money transfer services (e.g. TransferWise, Skrill etc) that offer faster transactions and lower rates, and we can verify that we have not faced any problems with any such transaction/service up to today. We are not associated/connected to any of them, but we advice all our clients to check all the alternatives and choose the best fitting option for them.

9) Note that we do not accept and we will not receive payments that are to be picked up in cash as a person-to-person transaction. Such payments will not be picked up by us and you will have to cancel the transaction in order to get your money back (this may result to additional fees by the service provider for the transaction)

10) In any case, please note that we can not consider a payment completed, and we will not further process any accepted submission, until the fee is actually received.

11) Regardless the service you used, make sure to state your submission ID number as a comment in your transaction order to help us identify the payment. 

12) Our fee may change over time. However, the fee charged for a specific manuscript is the one that was in effect on the date that the manuscript was submitted at our site.
