Catalysts - Open Access and Article Processing Charge (APC)
All articles in Catalysts (ISSN 2073-4344) are published in full open access. Authors are asked to pay an article processing charge (APC) of 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs) per processed paper. The APC only applies if the article is accepted for publication in Catalysts after peer-review and possible revision of the manuscript. There are no submission charges.
Note that many national and private research funding organizations and universities explicitly cover APCs for articles resulting from funded research projects. For more information on APC funding, see the following page.
Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions. Note that many national and private research funding organizations and universities explicitly cover APCs for articles resulting from funded research projects. Discounts are also available for authors from institutes which participate in MDPI's Institutional Open Access Program (IOAP).
In addition to Swiss Francs (CHF), we also accept payment in Euros (EUR), US Dollars (USD) or Chinese Yuan (CNY). Current exchange rates published at XE plus 5% exchange commission apply.
Reviewers who provide timely and substantial comments will receive a discount voucher code entitling them to a reduction in the article processing charge (APC) of a future submission to an MDPI journal. Vouchers are valid for two years and multiple vouchers can be redeemed against the same article. See http://blog.mdpi.com/2016/10/13/reviewing-for-mdpi-just-became-more-rewarding/ for details.
Please note that for papers submitted after 1 January 2018 an APC of 1300 CHF applies.
