Open Access and Article Processing Charge (APC)
All articles published in Catalysts (ISSN 2073-4344) 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 2000 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).
Reviewers who provide timely and substantial comments will receive a discount voucher code entitling them to a reduction in the article processing charge (APC) of a future submission to an MDPI journal. Vouchers are valid for two years and multiple vouchers can be redeemed against the same article. See http://blog.mdpi.com/2016/10/13/reviewing-for-mdpi-just-became-more-rewarding/ for details.
Please note that for papers submitted after 31 December 2021, an APC of 2200 CHF applies.
