Some journals request a publication or page charge fee to help offset the costs of disseminating your research results. These costs can range from $20 to $250 per page and should be charged to the department(s) from which the work originated.
If you need to pay for for publication fees associated with a SLAC Scientific and Technical Information (STI) document that has been accepted for publication, use the following guidelines to help you with the payment process at SLAC.
Submitting Payment Documentation
Assigning GL Codes for Publishing Fee Types
Page Charge/Reprint request forms can charge for a variety of items associated with STI publications. The table below outlines some of the more common items associated with publication and reprint fees, along with their applicable SLAC GL codes.
Processing Payments Where Fees are Shared by Multiple Institutions
In cases where co-authors from multiple institutions agree to split the publication fees, include a billing contact and the percentage to be paid for each institution where indicated on the page charge form and provide a copy to the journal and to the co-authors when submitting SLAC's payment documentation. The remaining institutions are then responsible for working with the journal to pay their portion.
