Open Access Publication
Author Select®—An Open Access Option
Applied Physics Reviews authors, through AIP’s Author Select® initiative, have the option to choose open access for their published article. By supporting both publication and archiving costs through payment of an $1800 fee, authors can provide free online access to their published article, in perpetuity, to any online user. A subscription to the online journal will not be required to access full-text versions of these open access articles.
The Editor(s) and reviewers are not informed of an author’s choice concerning open access; thus, the author’s decision in this regard will have no impact on any aspect of the peer review process or on an Editor’s ultimate decision regarding publication. The peer review process will proceed normally regardless of the author’s choice of conventional or open access publication.
When submitting either a new or revised manuscript to the journal’s online submission system, authors will be asked if they wish to pay the $1800 fee to have their paper, if accepted, published with open access for all readers. Authors who choose open access will be asked to make payment at the time page proofs are made available. Authors will be provided with a link to a customized website where they will be able to make their open access payment in a secure online environment.
When deciding on participation in Author Select, authors should note that payment of the open access fee covers regular page charges but does not cover other routine print publication costs, such as charges for reprints, color printing, or mandatory excess page fees; authors will be invoiced separately for any of those items that apply.
