All articles in International Journal of Sustainable Development and Planning are published under open access. To provide readers with free access and to cover the costs of peer review, copyediting, typesetting, long-term archiving, and journal management, an article processing charge (APC) of US $ 650 is applied to any paper submitted after January 1, 2024, and subsequently accepted for publication. The APC payable for an article is agreed as part of the manuscript submission process.
The peer review generally takes 2 months from submission to final decision. Once an article is accepted, the corresponding author will be notified that payment is due, and need to arrange the payment promptly. The accepted article will not be published before we receive the payment.
Invoices are emailed shortly after acceptance to the payment contact provided by the authors. Only official invoices issued by the IIETA are valid. Payment of the APC can be made by credit card or wire transfer.
