Open Access Policy

All articles published by Engineering and Technology Publishing are made immediately available worldwide under an open access license. This means:

  • everyone has free and unlimited access to the full-text of all articles;
  • everyone is free to re-use the published material if proper accreditation/citation of the original publication is given;
  • open access publication is supported by the authors' institutes or research funding agencies by payment of a comparatively low Article Processing Charge (APC) for accepted articles.

Advantages of Open Access Publication

  • The High Availability and Visibility of our open access articles
  • The Higher Citation Impact
  • Faster Publication

Article Processing Charge (APC)

ETPub publishes all its journals in full open access, so the author's company or institution will be requested to pay a flat article processing charge for an accepted manuscript regardless of the length of the paper. The APC covers the costs of peer review administration and management, professional production of articles in PDF, and dissemination of published papers in various venues, and journal promotion.

Article Processing Charges are required after a manuscript has been accepted for publication. There are no charges for rejected articles, no submission charges, and no surcharges based on the length of an article.

The article processing charge is mandatory and the journals will not issue refunds of any kind after the acceptance of the manuscript.

For reviewers, we will provide a discount voucher for each qualified review, and the voucher is effective within one year. Please note that the voucher is only applied for submissions in this journal, and the authors may use one or several vouchers for one submission.

For specific journal's APC, please refer to journal website.
