ARTICLE PROCESSING CHARGE

All articles published by Baishideng Publishing Group (Baishideng) are selected by an in-house editor and fully peer-reviewed by external reviewers. Baishideng applies the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial (CC BY-NC 4.0) license, which permits others to distribute, remix, adapt, build upon this work non-commercially, and license their derivative works on different terms, provided the original work is properly cited and the use is non-commercial. See: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0/

All Baishideng journals are open-access (OA). An Article Processing Charge (APC) for OA publication will be invoiced upon the acceptance of each manuscript and remitted in full by the authors’ affiliations or funders to Baishideng before publication. The APC covers the costs of peer review, copyediting, typesetting, long-term archiving, and journal management.

For unsolicited manuscripts, there are following four levels of APC: (1) Standard APC, for general manuscripts; (2) 10% discounted APC, for manuscripts contributed by young scholars under 45 years-old; (3) 20% discounted APC, for manuscripts that are given rating of scientific significance as AA or AB or BB (A: Excellent; B: Good) by peer reviewers; and (4) 50% discounted APC, for manuscripts contributed by a corresponding author who is a member of the editorial board or serves as a peer reviewer for Baishideng-published journals. We also provide discounts in line with the Research4Life programme as follows: Group A countries: APC is fully waived; and Group B countries: 50% discount. For invited manuscripts, the APC is fully waived.

All Baishideng publications' APC standards are shown in Table 1. The detailed policy for discounted APC can be found at the bottom of the table.
