IAJPS E-books are made freely and permanently available online immediately upon publication.They are subject to high-level peer review, author and production services ensuring quality and reliability of the work. Authors publishing with IAJPS retain the copyright to their work, licensing it under a Creative Commons license.
Typically, we offer this option only for monographs, which are books usually written by a single author, or group of authors, to convey the results of their research and analysis in a particular field of study.Under this model, the author (or a funder) pays a Book Processing Fee and an online version of the book is published under a Creative Commons licence.
For example, we may be able to offer a discount if you provide material in readyto-publish form.
How much are your Book Processing Charges?
Our standard charge is ($2,000) for a work of up to 120,000 words, and $500 per additional 30,000 words. Illustrated works will incur a charge of $20 per figure. The standard fee does not include VAT or other taxes, but these might be chargeable on top of it. We do, however, consider each book individually.
Are there any other differences from more conventional publishing options?
No. We will apply the same high standards and procedures as for our other publications. This includes editorial processes such as peer review, production processes of design and typesetting, through to marketing and dissemination. Our OA option is geared purely towards allowing you to make your book freely available online for academic purposes.
Can I include third-party material in an Open Access work?
Yes, but some rights holders might be reluctant to allow their material to be reproduced in an OA work. You must ensure that any permissions you secure for third-party material allow you to include it in your OA work. Ideally, the third-party material will have been previously published under a Creative Commons licence that already allows you include it. Other third-party material can be clearly indicated as being reproduced by permission and that it is protected by third party copyright, with a notice that it cannot be re-used without further permissions clearance from the identified third-party rights holder
How will I know if a book is available as Open Access?
Below is a screenshot showing an example of an Open Access book, signified by the ‘Access’ and ‘Open Access’ logos. Do other charges such as page, colour etc. apply in addition to the Open Access charge? These charges apply only for the printed issues, depending on whether or not the journal applies them.
