Article Processing Charges (APC)

BIOTICA Journals are Open Access journal accessible for free on the Internet. We guarantee that no university library or individual reader will ever have to buy a subscription or pay any pay-per-view fees to access articles in the electronic version of the journal. There is hence no revenue at BIOTICA neither from the sale of subscriptions to the electronic version of the journal, advertising revenue, sell reprints, any other institutional or organizational support nor from pay-per-view fees.

Yet, the online publication process does involve costs including those pertaining to setup and maintenance of the publication infrastructure, routine operation of the journal, processing of manuscripts through peer-reviews, editing, publishing, maintaining the scholarly record, DOI and archiving. To cover these costs, the journals depend on Publication Fees.
