Article Processing Charges
Why do Science Publishing Group Journals have Article Processing Charges?
Traditional journals are solely based on a reader-pays model, in which institutional libraries typically pay for the access to content. However, all journals published by Science Publishing Group are full open access. The scientific community and general public can access all articles published in the journal for free.
This means that Science Publishing Group does not gain any income through selling subscriptions of the printed or online versions of the published articles. Therefore, by collecting Article Processing Charges from authors' institutes or research funding bodies, Science Publishing Group is able to cover the various publishing services:
●  Editorial work: peer review, administrative support, commissioning content, journal development.
●  Technical infrastructure and innovation: development, maintenance and operation of online journal system and websites.
●  Production of articles: formatting and mark-up of articles and inclusion in indexing services.
●  Marketing of journal and content: making sure readers and authors know about the work published in the title.
●  Customer service: responding to authors and readers.
How Much Does Science Publishing Group Charge for Its Different Journals?
Nuclear Science is an Open Access journal accessible for free on the Internet. With Open Access, Science Publishing Group (SciencePG) allows us to distribute knowledge more widely and at a lower cost than was previously possible. However, to cover the editorial services and production of an article, the journal depends on Article Processing Charges (APC).

The Article Processing Charge for the journal is 870 USD.

Article Processing Charge discounts or waivers are given to authors from low-income countries or lower-middle-income countries (classified by the world bank; To learn more, click:

When and How do Authors Pay?
The corresponding author needs to arrange payment of the Article Processing Charges unless a waiver has been granted. Following peer review, once a manuscript has received editorial acceptance in principle, the Article Processing Charges becomes payable and the formatting checks on the manuscript will commence. Once formatting checks are completed, and payment of the Article Processing Charges has been received, the article will be published.

Are Reprints of the Article Included in the Article Processing Charges?
No. Article Processing Charges do not entitle the authors to receive reprints of their published article. Reprints can be ordered separately and optionally for any article that has been published in a Science Publishing Group journal. To request an offer for reprints of an article, please send an e-mail to

Open Access
Open access (OA) is the practice of providing unrestricted access via the Internet to peer-reviewed scholarly journal articles. OA is also increasingly being provided to theses, scholarly monographs and book chapters.
• By making information freely available in this way, Open Access accelerates research and learning.
• By reducing the barriers that restrict access to knowledge, Open Access maximizes the opportunity for publications to be read and for authors to be recognized for their contribution in their chosen field and beyond.
Peer Review
The peer review process is to ensure the quality of manuscripts before publication. Generally, the submitted manuscripts will be reviewed by two to three experts in related research areas. They will evaluate the submitted manuscripts for the originality, validity and significance and help the editorial team determine whether the manuscripts should be accepted for publication.
All the submissions to Nuclear Science will undergo double-blind peer review process, which means the reviewer identity is concealed from the author, and vice versa, throughout the review process.
