Article Processing Charges (APC) Management system (SciPris)

SciPris - an automated system for the collection of fees from authors, funding bodies, and institutions - connecting the submission of journal articles to a publisher with the collection of Article Processing, Open Access, and other page charges.

SciPris streamlines the processing of open access, publishing, colour figure, and reprint charges directly within the submission and production workflows. Automated communication between the systems further allows authors to seamlessly process payments through the SciPris portal without disrupting their workflow.
