Information of Article Processing Charges (APC)


Cosmos S.A. - Global NEST Journal provides the scientific community with unlimited and free online access to all the papers published.

To be able to upgrade our services and manage the editorial costs, for the manuscripts submitted after 1st January 2019, an Article Processing Charge (APC) of 200 euros will be charged. The amount will be paid only to accepted for publication articles after peer-review. No charge will be applied to declined manuscripts and no extra charges will be applied for the formatting of the final version of the manuscript. In case the reviewers detect serious language problems in the manuscript submitted, the authors will be asked – prior to acceptance - to improve the paper by their own means (correction by a native-English speaker or by addressing a professional editing service – this is not provided by Global NEST journal). Editorials for special issues, and all other types of documentation such as Corrections, Additions, Retractions, Letters, Comments, etc. are published free of charge.

APCs will help us cover the following:

  • Staff salaries for journal administration. The journal’s staff is responsible for all the administration and support related to peer-review of the manuscripts, the submission of the revised versions and the final decision of the editor-in-chief. The editorial process is completed exclusively online as a part of our effort to facilitate the editorial board and the reviewers to focus on the review and the decisions for the submitted manuscripts.

  • The administration regarding the rejected papers, which constitute the 75% of the submitted manuscripts.

  • Editing of manuscripts. This includes professional style formatting, type-setting, formatting, and production of proofs and final version of the accepted papers.
