Humanities - Open Access and Article Processing Charge (APC)

All articles published in Humanities (ISSN 2076-0787) are published in full open access. The article processing charges (APCs) of 350 CHF (Swiss Francs) per accepted paper are partially funded by institutions through the Knowledge Unlatched initiative and partially funded by MDPI, resulting in no direct charge to authors. See the table below for the list of institutions that contribute funds towards this initiative. For more information on Knowledge Unlatched and other APC free journals, see:

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. Discounts are also available for authors from institutes which participate in MDPI's Institutional Open Access Program (IOAP).
