the Editorial Board of Journals, ISIJ
Renewal of government subsidies and increase in the number of submission are worsening the balance of journal publication cost. To reduce the deficit, the Editorial Board of Journals has decided to increase page charges.
All manuscripts submitted to “ISIJ International” and “Tetsu-to-hagané” on or after January 1, 2014 are charged 9,300yen per published page(PDF file).
The previous charge (6,667yen per published page) is applied to manuscripts submitted before January 1, 2014, even if they are accepted subsequently.
