Article Processing Charge

The CRBB journal publishes articles in full open access; anyone is free to use and reuse articles without limit provided they give appropriate credit to the authors. All articles are published under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) license. Read the full open access policy here.

Authors are required to pay a one-time Article Processing Charge (APC) to cover the costs of journal administration and management, professional production of articles in PDF and other formats, dissemination of published papers in various venues, and other publishing functions. The APC for CRBB is 50 US Dollars per article. There are no charges for rejected articles, no submission charges, and no surcharges based on the length of an article or supplementary data.

Discounts and Waivers

Authors can request discounts or waivers of the APC by submitting a letter of request to the Editor-in-Chief during submission. We retain the right to approve, reject, or provide varying discounts depending on the proposition made by the author.

Currently, we are waiving the APC for all submissions until further notice. For the time being, all accepted manuscripts will be published free of charge.
