Flexible Online Color Option

For manuscripts accepted for publication, all color figures will be published in color online at no cost, and authors may choose to publish figures in color in the print journal for £350/US$600/€525 per figure. You may choose to have color figures converted to black and white images for the print journal, for which there is no cost. Authors will be contacted by e-mail after your article is accepted for publication to confirm your preferences and to approve any costs incurred for printing color figures. For color figures published in the printed journal, you will be issued an invoice at the time of publication. If you wish to publish color figures in the printed journal but are not able to cover the cost of color figures, please contact the Editor.

Open Access Option for Authors

JPIDS authors have the option to publish their paper under the Oxford Open initiative, whereby, for a charge, their paper will be made freely available online immediately upon publication. After your manuscript is accepted, the corresponding author will be required to accept a mandatory licence to publish agreement. As part of the licensing process, you will be asked to indicate whether or not you wish to pay for open access. If you do not select the open access option, your paper will be published with standard subscription-based access and you will not be charged.
