Book processing charge

Your editor will be able to provide you with a quote for the Book Processing Charge (BPC) or Chapter Processing Charge (CPC) and discuss Creative Commons licensing options (our default license is CC BY). Once they’ve been agreed upon, these fee and licensing details will be included in the book contract.

The BPC/CPC covers all the costs of commissioning, managing peer-review, copyediting and proofreading, production, dissemination, and promotion, including online hosting and indexing.

ISCI is committed to keeping its open access publication charges at a minimum level:

Edition chapters 800 GBP for accepted manuscripts
Monographs from 4,000 GBP for accepted manuscripts, depending on several factors including length and text type – please get in touch with us to find out more.

Authors looking for funding to cover these costs can take advantage of ISCI’s funding support:
