Article Processing Charge
Progress of Theoretical and Experimental Physics (PTEP) is an online-only Open Access journal distributed free of charge.
The journal is financed by an article processing charge (APC) paid by authors but it is our policy to keep the financial burden on authors to a minimum, and we will consider APC waiver requests from any authors who may be unable to find appropriate funding - irrespective of subject areas or affiliated institutions.
Authors who wish to request an APC waiver should select "Waiver request (Author does not have to pay charge)" as their choice of payment when submitting their manuscript.
Please note that PTEP is a SCOAP3 partner journal, which means all high-energy physics articles (defined as having been submitted to arXiv.org with a primary classification of [hep-ex], [hep-lat], [hep-ph], or [hep-th]) will be published free of charge to the authors. Several other institutions also support PTEP authors.
The APC for Papers and Letters is 130,000 Yen per article independent of its length. The APC for other categories, such as Errata, Addenda, Comments and Replies is 10,000 Yen per page. If you select "By author" or "By author's affiliation" as your choice of payment, you will be invoiced after the article is published online. If payment is made from within Japan, the appropriate consumption tax is added.
Should you have any queries about our waiver scheme, or if you wish to know whether your APC can be waived before submitting, please contact the editorial office at email@example.com.
