Frequently Asked Questions

Are these really the only costs?

Yes! There are no setup fees or installation fees or other fees of any kind for Scholastica's Peer Review, Open Access Publishing or Typesetting products.

Can my journal have authors pay the peer review submission fee?

Yes, you can include a submission step prompting authors to pay the submission fee by credit card.

How will my journal be charged?

  • Peer review is charged $250 annually, and then monthly charges are based on the number of article submissions ($10 per submission).
  • Open Access Publishing is charged once per year.
  • Scholastica Typesetting is charged per article. There is an initial deposit required, and articles are charged against that balance.

Is there a long term contract?

No! You can signup in just a few minutes, and you're free to cancel at any time. If you ever need to export your data, just send us an email and we'll help you download everything in a standardized format (e.g. XML, JSON, etc). In the near future, journals will be able to export their data with a single click.

If I submit a typesetting request for an article that is not divisible by 500 words (e.g., has 510 words), how will I be charged?

Scholastica charges $5 per 500 words and $5 for any remaining words. For example, an article that has 510 words would cost $10 (plus $7 per figure/table). We do this to simplify billing, so there is no need to factor in "by the word" charges.

What if I have other questions?
