Open Access

Palgrave Communications is an open access journal offering free and immediate online access to all articles published. To provide this service, an article-processing charge (APC) is levied for each article accepted for publication. The APC is a flat, one-off charge and authors are not faced with additional charges for longer articles or particular numbers of pages, tables or figures.

APC prices: US$1200/£750/€1,000 (plus VAT or local taxes where applicable). A waiver and discount policy applies for qualifying authors. Visit our APC FAQs and our funding support service page for additional information and guidance.

Articles are published under a Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) License to support maximum dissemination and use. Authors are also permitted to post the final, published PDF of their article on a website, institutional repository or other free public server, immediately on publication.
