Article-processing charges and funding support

Support

Open access publishing is not without costs. IZA Journal of Labor Policy therefore levies an article-processing charge (APC) of £980/$1535/€1250 for each article accepted for publication.

SpringerOpen provides a membership program for institutions to support researchers who publish in our journals. Find out if your institution covers APCs for your article.

Also, SpringerOpen offers APC waivers to authors from Low-income economies. If you are eligible for a waiver, you can apply for it at the end of the submission process.

Benefit from our free OA funding service


We offer a free open access support service to make it easier for you to discover and apply for article-processing charge (APC) funding. For more information also read our OA funding FAQs.
