To which articles will this charge apply?

The charge applies to all articles accepted for publication in the Data Engineering, Visualization Journal of Artificial Intelligence, with the exception of articles submitted for publication in supplements.

Why a flat charge rather than one based on page numbers?

The size of an article is not a reliable indicator of the actual amount of work involved in obtaining peer reviews and preparing the article for publication. While the state of an article when submitted and its complexity could be more useful discriminators, the lack of objective tools to measure these factors has led us to conclude that a flat fee is the fairest approach at this stage.

Who is responsible for making the payment?

The individual who submits the manuscript is responsible for making or arranging the payment (e.g., through their institution). The submitting author must confirm, at the time of submission, that they will organize payment should the article be accepted for publication.

How do I pay?

You will need to arrange payment of the APC unless a waiver has been granted, or your institution has covered the cost through a membership scheme. After peer review, once a manuscript has received editorial acceptance in principle, the article processing charge becomes payable, and formatting checks on the manuscript will commence. Once formatting checks are completed, and payment of the article processing charge has been received, the article will be published.

Prompt payment is advised, and payment can be made via online payment, UPI or bank transfer.
