Journal Policies / Fees and charges

The journal is owned by Vilnius Gediminas Technical University (VILNIUS TECH) who supports the journal and the publishing operation of VILNIUS TECH. However, the part of the cost of publication is funded by Article Publication Charges (APCs) paid by authors or their institutes. 


The fixed standard Article processing charge 121 Eur, including 21% VAT tax is applicable for all manuscripts submitted after 1st of June 2022. This charge includes the costs of the review process, systems, typesetting, web publication and long-term archiving.


According to the laws of Lithuania, the tax (VAT) must be included for payers who are natural persons and only institutions can have it excluded (for European Union countries only). For institutions paying the APCs, they can be transferred directly to VILNIUS TECH, excluding the VAT from the sum.
