Open Access and Article Processing Charge (APC)
All articles published in Diversity (ISSN 1424-2818) are published in full open access. An article processing charge (APC) of 1900 CHF (Swiss Francs) applies to papers accepted after peer review. For papers of type “Interesting Image”, an APC of 550 CHF applies for publication in this journal.
Please note that for papers submitted after 31 December 2022, an APC of 2000 CHF will apply.
This article processing charge is to cover the costs of peer review, copyediting, typesetting, long-term archiving, and journal management. 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).
