Open Access initiatives also help authors with publishing costs:

ISCI is proud to participate in the Knowledge Unlatched (KU) initiative, which covers Book Processing Charges (BPCs) for manuscripts in Humanities and Social Sciences titles through a crowd-funding mechanism.

This is a pilot program experimenting ways to support authors to submit and publish for free in open access.
