Open Access and Article Processing Charge (APC)
All articles published in Chromatography (ISSN 2227-9075) are published in full open access. In order to provide free access to readers, and to cover the costs of peer review, copyediting, typesetting, long-term archiving, and journal management, an article processing charge (APC) of 350 CHF (Swiss Francs) applies to papers accepted after peer review. In addition to Swiss Francs (CHF), we also accept payment in Euros (EUR), US Dollars (USD), British Pound Sterling (GBP), Japanese Yen (JPY) or Canadian Dollars (CAD).
Local VAT or Sales Tax will be added if applicable.
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).
Separations is a new journal and publication fees are fully waived for papers submitted in 2017. However, a fee of 250 CHF may apply for those articles that need major editing and formatting and/or English editing.
*The Editorial office of Separations (formerly Chromatography, ISSN 2227-9075, CODEN: CHROBV) have applied for an ISSN and will announce it as soon as it is defined.
