Price Policy

General Information on Price Setting
OPUS publishes all its articles in full open access, meaning unlimited use and reuse of articles, in addition to giving credit to the authors. OPUS publishes journal articles under the Open access articles whose publication is funded by payments that are made by authors, their institution or funding bodies, commonly known as Article Publishing Charges.
Article Charges
Irrespective of the publishing model chosen by the author, our goal is to ensure articles are published as quickly as possible, subject to appropriate quality controls, and widely disseminated. Where an author has chosen to publish open access, which typically involves the upfront payment of an article publishing charge, we will also make their article immediately and freely available upon publication on dergipark.org.tr and Opusjournal.net, in perpetuity, with the author’s chosen user license attached to it. Opus’s publishing prices are set on a per article basis, fees range between

500 US Dollars.
Authors pay a one-time Article Processing Charge (100) to cover the costs of peer review (payment for reviewers) administration and Article Publication Charge (400) to cover the cost of management, professional production of articles in PDF and other formats, and dissemination of published papers in various venues, in addition to other publishing functions.
Please note that the option to process an advance payment of Article Processing Charge (100) remains but does not guarantee acceptance of manuscripts. After the editorial processes and acceptance of article for publication, corresponding author are supposed to provide Article Publication Charge (400).
Editorial Fees
OPUS pays to all Field Editors and reviewers and a share of revenue to the societies whose journals it publishes.
Discounts and Waivers
OPUS waives 15%–20% of its content every year. We are committed to supporting the transition of all research to full open access, so offer Article Publication Charge waivers or discounts to some authors.
For authors from low- and middle-income countries, waivers or discounts may be granted on a case-by-case basis. Applications submitted before article submission are assessed based on the quality of the research article and the authors’ ability to pay.
To ensure that editorial decisions are never influenced by ability to pay, it is OPUS policy that editors are not involved in correspondence with authors regarding payment of Article Publication Charges. The automatic waiver system will be managed by administrative staff not involved in decisions regarding article acceptance. We ask authors not to discuss any issues concerning payment with editors.
OPUS enables research from authors from low- and middle-income countries to be published open access by providing automatic waivers and discounts on Article Publication Charges for authors accepted to publish in Opus.
