Article-processing charges (APC)
Open access publishing proposes a relatively new model for scholarly journal publishing that provides immediate, worldwide, barrier-free access to the full-text of all published articles. Open access allows all interested readers to view, download, print, and redistribute any article without a subscription, enabling far greater distribution of an author's work than the traditional subscription-based publishing model. Many authors in a variety of fields have begun to realize the benefits that open access publishing can provide in terms of increasing the impact of their work.In an open-access model, the publication costs of an article are paid from an author's research budget, or by their supporting institution, in the form of Article Processing Charges (APC). These APC replace subscription charges and allow publishers to make the full-text of every published article freely available to all interested readers. In addition, authors who publish in our open access journals retain the copyright of their work, which is released under a “Creative Commons Attribution License,” enabling the unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction of an article in any medium, provided that the original work is properly cited.
Fast-Track Review Fee (FTF)
Authors sometimes have to meet publication deadlines, e.g. for promotion & tenure or thesis defense, grant proposals, the spending of research funds before a certain deadline, the publication of follow-up papers, or because the findings are deemed important. To facilitate a speedy turn-around when a rapid decision is required, SalviaPub offers a review model in which selected peer reviewers may be paid to deliver high-quality and speedy peer-review reports. This is entirely optional - if you do not wish to pay for a fast-track peer review process, just submit your paper normally as described before in the instruction for authors. If you opt for a fast-track review, you are guaranteed: a rapid editorial decision and peer-review comments within 2 weeks (plus any additional holidays within that period) after submission and payment of the fee.
