Submission Guidelines

There is a limited number of articles available for subsidy each year and as such,  authors with eligible grant funds are requested to use those funds for APCs in order to provide the subsidy to authors without funding. 
Once the limit has been reached for the calendar year (first come, first served),  the subsidy will cease for the remainder of the calendar year.  Authors that submit articles after the subsidy has ceased will be alerted during the submission process.
