Article Processing Charge

In July 2018, you were informed about the introduction of an Article Processing Charge (APC). As an independent Not-for-Profit publisher run by scientists that believes in publishing for scientists, this was a difficult yet necessary decision. eCM requires an APC to provide for its staffing, web maintenance, use of an external submission management system, article archiving and more. eCM has maintained its Not-for-Profit nature despite the introduction of the APC and we can assure you that all fees have been kept to a minimum. All scientific editors and the Editor-in-Chief are volunteers and receive no stipend of any kind. For this reason, we have kept the APC ($1000) as low as possible when compared to journals of similar impact factor, where the APC ranges between $2000 and $4000.
