    Publishing with Open Communications Press

    OCP Journals

    Open Communications Press journals provide rapid peer-review and publication of research and review articles that are scientifically and technically sound. Our transparent peer-review system ensures that decisions on manuscripts are taken by the Editorial team as quickly as possible.

    Manuscripts submitted to Open Communications Press journals will be sent for peer-review by the relevant Subject Editor and are evaluated on the following criteria:

    • Compliance with appropriate ethical standards
    • Technical standards in experimental procedures and statistical analysis
    • Scientific significance of the reported results
    • Reasonable interpretation and adherence of the results to community standards for data availability and form

    The Subject Editors are responsible for all final editorial decisions based on the recommendations of the referees.

    Partner Journals

    Partner journals are created in association with institutions such as societies, academic departments and university publishers and usually focus on a specific subject area.

    Partner journals increase the visibility of the partner institution by publication and promotion of high impact research. Partner journals also offer the potential for generating revenue for the partner institution. For each partner journal, we develop a site that uniquely reflects the brand of our partner institution. New partner journals are regularly highlighted throughout the Open Communications Press network and social media outlets.

    If you are a scientific or academic society and are interested in open access publishing, then we are interested in working with you to launch open access journals for your institution. We can also help to convert your traditional subscription-based journal into an open access title.

    Article Processing Charges

    All Open Communications Press journals are fully open access and funded through Article Processing Charges (APCs). Authors are asked to pay APCs upon acceptance of their article. Open Communications Press journals promote a transparent and accountable approach to open access and a part of each APC is re-invested in the research community through payment of honoraria to the reviewers and subject editors of the manuscript. Our aim is to provide a venue for all properly conducted and scientifically significant research to be fully reported following a rigorous peer-review process.

    The APC for regular research articles and reviews in all Open Communications Press journals is just €800 , with lower fees for shorter articles and communications. A transparent breakdown of how we calculate our APC is displayed below. Please refer to individual journal websites for full details.
