World Scientific's Policy on Gold Open Access Publication
With the support of the open access Article-Processing Charge (APC), World Scientific enables authors to have their final version of their papers published on an open access basis, granting on publication, immediate and unrestricted access to the final published version of the paper. This is made available using the Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) or (CC BY-NC) licence. It also allows immediate deposit of the final published version in other repositories without restriction on re-use.
The Article-Processing Charge (APC) of Open Access is US$1500 but can vary across journals. When authors choose WorldScientificOpen, they will retain the copyright to the article and sign a "Open Access Licence to Publish" with us. Each WorldScientificOpen article will be clearly identified with an "Open Access" icon in the e-version.
