2. Author Fee-Based Open Access eBooks
These are freely available to download and view to potentially a very large audience world-wide, thereby having a much greater impact than conventional subscription-based printed or online ebooks. The upfront charge for publishing a single open access ebook is US$ 20 per published page of the first 200 pages and US$ 15 for all additional pages above the first 200 pages.
3. Fast Track Open Access Chapter Publication
This option allows chapter author(s) / contributor(s) of an eBook to have their chapter published as an open access chapter after it has been carefully reviewed and approved by the editor even before the complete eBook is finalized and published. Chapters published as Fast Track Open Access will be published within 15 working days from receipt of payment and written consent from the eBook editor (whichever is later). For any chapter to be published as Open Access it is a pre-condition that there are no errors in English grammar nor any plagiarism. Before the chapter is considered for Fast Track Open Access publication, the eBook editor must also confirm that he has reviewed the chapter for scientific contents and considers it suitable for publication.
The fee for "FAST TRACK Open Access" publication is US $ 26 per page. The chapter will be replaced by its modified version if any modifications are made therein, as advised by reviewers. Chapter authors who opt for the Fast Track Open Access option do not have to pay figure improvement charges if any figure improvement is required.
