Societies - Open Access and Article Processing Charge (APC)
All articles in Societies (ISSN 2075-4698) are published in full open access. The Article Processing Charges (APCs) of 350 CHF (Swiss Francs) per published paper are fully funded by institutions through the Knowledge Unlatched initiative, resulting in no direct charge to authors. To view the full list of institutions that contributed funds towards this initiative, see: http://www.mdpi.com/authors/funding. For more information on Knowledge Unlatched and other APC free journals, see: http://www.knowledgeunlatched.org.
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).
