Publication Fee

Open Access and Article Processing Charge (APC)

Lectito has waived all fees until 31 December 2022 starting from 1 March 2020 due to the COVID-19 outbreak. By 1 January 2023 an article processing charge (APC) of 750 Euros applies to papers accepted after peer review. This article processing charge is to cover the costs of peer review, copyediting, typesetting, long-term archiving, and journal management. We accepted currency is EURO.

Local VAT or Sales Tax will be added if applicable.

Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use Lectito’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.

APC Waivers

Lectito offers APC waivers to papers whose majority of authors are based in countries classified by the World Bank as low-income economies as of July 2023.

Papers whose majority of authors are based in countries with lower-middle-income economies will get 50% discount.

Please request your waiver or discount at the point of submission.

Payment Process

Upon editorial acceptance of an article, the corresponding author will receive an email containing invoice. You need to arrange payment unless a waiver has been granted.

We advise prompt payment as we are unable to publish accepted articles until payment has been received.

Payment can be made by only wire transfer to Lectito’s bank account. The account info for the transfer will be provided on the invoice.

No taxes are included in this charge. If you are resident in any European Union country you have to add Value-Added Tax (VAT) at the rate applicable in the respective country.  Institutions that are not based in the NETHERLANDS and are paying your fee on your behalf can have the VAT charge recorded under the EU reverse charge method, this means VAT does not need to be added to the invoice. Such institutions are required to supply us with their VAT registration number. If you are resident in Japan you have to add Japanese Consumption Tax (JCT) at the rate set by the Japanese government.
