IJREE – Open Express

Open Express:
Lately, we've perceived an increasing interest from our authors to provide their own scholarly articles for Open Access. As library budgets are diminishing and often constrained to (very expensive) natural sciences journals, Open Access is a considerable option for you as an author as well as for us as a publisher in the social and educational sciences.

The benefits of Open Access for you as an author are obvious:
● legal distribution via Researchgate and similar platforms
● immediate accessibility worldwide
● permanent availability even when your article is out of print
● free access for readers

We hence have developed our Open Express offer for our authors: If you wish, we can provide your contribution for immediate Open Access upon publication of the printed issue. The one-time author's fee for Open Express is 199,00 EUR. Your university usually pays for the article processing charges – just simply ask!
