Calculate Open Access Journal Publication Costs

Also known as Article Publishing Charge or Article Processing Charge (APC), this fee covers the cost of publishing in an open access journal.

Some sites that will help calculate these charges:

"The Eigenfactor Index of Open Access Fees makes it easy for scholarly authors to engage in comparison shopping between scholarly journals. Background and information about how to use the tool is provided on the entry page."


You can find current open access publishing costs for Taylor & Francis and Routledge journals using the Taylor and Francis Open Access Cost Finder


Funding for page costs

Apply for funding for these fees on UCT's electronic Research Administration (eRA) system.
