Advances in High Energy Physics

Article Processing Charges

The charge

As an Open Access title, publishing an article in this journal requires an Article Processing Charge (APC) that will be billed to the submitting author following acceptance. Apart from this Article Processing Charge there are no other fees (for example submission charges, page charges, or color charges). The Article Processing Charge for the journal is $1500.

No APC is payable by authors for qualifying articles under the SCOAP3, as detailed below.

SCOAP³ qualifying articles

Advances in High Energy Physics participates in SCOAP3 (Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics). Under this arrangement CERN, on behalf of over 3,000 partners across 44 countries, pay the required Article Processing Charge for qualifying articles. As such, no payment is requested from the authors.

In order to qualify, articles must be deposited in the arXiv preprint server prior to publication, with a high energy physics subject area as the primary category, either Experiment (hep-ex), Lattice (hep-lat), Phenomenology (hep-ph), or Theory (hep-th).

As well as on, all articles also appear in the SCOAP3 repository for further distribution.

    Value Added Tax

    Hindawi Limited is based in the United Kingdom and must charge a 20% Value Added Tax (VAT) on qualifying transactions. Where applicable, the VAT will be in addition to the APC fees indicated above. UK VAT applies when we supply services to individuals or organizations based in the UK or to non-VAT registered individuals or organizations within the EU. Transactions with VAT-registered individuals or organizations based outside the UK but within the EU are outside the scope of UK VAT. All transactions with customers outside of the EU are also outside the scope of UK VAT.

      Refund policy

      Once an article has been accepted for publication, any Article Processing Charge on the article become due. The submitting author assumes responsibility for the Article Processing Charge, and Hindawi will not issue refunds of any kind.


        Hindawi operates a transparent waiver policy help support researchers who are unable to meet some or all of the cost associated with publishing open access.
