Article Processing Charge

In order to provide free access to readers, it is a common practice for OA journals to charge Article Processing Charge (APC) to cover the costs of copyediting, typesetting, indexing & archiving, and journal management. IJCETI is no exception.

The publisher agrees not to charge APCs till end of 2023. It intends to support the Chinese and English translation & interpreting community with the publication of their valuable work and dissemination. The journal’s operational costs will be covered and funded by AT-Translation during this period.

For research with funding support, it is strongly recommended that APCs are paid during this period to support the operation of the journal. The APC rate for 2023 is 260 British sterling pounds.

IJCETI is actively seeking sustainable ways to support its operation in the interim and long term. APCs will be charged to the articles published after 1 January 2024. However, IJCETI will provide explicit waivers and discounts to authors from low- and middle-income countries, based on the Research4Life country list. Authors from these countries will have APC costs waived (for Group A countries) or reduced by 50% (for Group B countries). For unfunded work, the journal will also offer merit-based APC waivers or discounts at the journal’s discretion.
