Publishing Cost

Like many open access publishers, we do not generate revenue from selling subscriptions. Instead, we make all articles we publish freely available. Unlike scholarly open access publishers, we do not have an Article Processing Charge just to accept and publish your work. Our cost covers the full production process, from writing to design through to hosting, archiving and disseminating your article. This should not be compared to an open access fee or an article processing charge, this is a TOTAL cost that covers the full service we offer.

Due to our free readership model, our determination to avoid becoming an advertising generator, and the fact that our work is costly (especially due to our high standards), we rely on a financial contribution from the featured research teams to make the whole publication possible. We’ve found this to be key in keeping page space dedicated to research and not being governed by third party advertising. We try to make this as cost effective as possible and work to a very competitive pricing structure; this is not about generating large profits – it is to produce, publish and distribute the publication in a truly open access and barrier free format.

Which package is for you?

 

With over 6000 new papers published daily, researchers must increasingly consider the socioeconomic impact of their work, which is much more than just the number of people who read their articles. With all of our editorial packages, you will receive professional science communication writing, editing, and design support. All material published will also be completely free and un-walled for anyone and everyone to access.

Each of our packages has been strategically developed to accommodate different communication and budget requirements. Learn a little more about our editorial packages and decide which is most suitable for your research.

Option 1 – dissemination brochure

This option is suited to those who require a professional information document but may not require any dissemination or promotion. If you want a well-written, well-designed research summary brochure that can be printed and used as a visitor or patient handout, or a conference takeaway, then this is for you. Our team will write, edit, and design a 4-page summary of your research, which is designed to reach a broad audience with various levels of understanding. As a bonus, we will also host your article within our digital library, so that your piece is digitally archived.

Option 2 – Scientia

This option includes all the same professional production elements as option 1, but with the added benefit of our publishing and dissemination efforts. This option is for those who wish to reach a very broad and diverse audience though our network and beyond. Your article will be published in our article library in both PDF and HTML format; this enhances the web discoverability through search engines such as Google. We will also publish your article within a full magazine edition of Scientia, which is published in both print and digital format and through our social media channels, reaching over 85,000 readers.

Option 3 – Scientia with audiobook (powered by SciPod)

Podcasts and audiobooks are a modern phenomenon and the fastest-growing communication tool to date. Recent analysis suggested that 75% of people would choose to listen to an audiobook than read text. With an estimated 285 million visually impaired people, and 700 million dyslexic people, we should also not underestimate the value that an audio service offers to a community who are often overlooked in academic publishing. With this package, you will receive all of the production and publishing benefits of option 2, but through our audio partner SciPod, we will turn your article into an audiobook and disseminate it through all major audio sites including iTunes, Spotify, Google Podcasts and SoundCloud, to name a few. This package is designed for those who want to reach an even larger audience and do something a little extra than normal.

Option 4 – The 3 senses of scicomm

Cognitive differences mean some people absorb knowledge by reading, some people by listening, and others visually. This option is our multi-media package that has been designed to produce and disseminate your research by text, audio, and video. If you are truly passionate about outreach and science communication, then this is the option for you. Including all the benefits of option 3, we will also produce a short 2D animation about your research, which is then hosted alongside your article, and disseminated through our YouTube channel. Video animation can quickly bridge geographic, demographic and language barriers, allowing you to communicate quickly and share the message of your research to a time-conscious society.
