Circulation in Computer Science is currently funded by an article processing charge (APC) paid by the author once the manuscript has been accepted for publication.

All work published in Circulation in Computer Science is open access and published under Creative Commons Attribution License. This ensures free web access and unrestricted visibility for published papers.

To support the open access initiative instead of charging subscription fees from the readers, an author-pays model is applied for publication. In this model, Article Processing Charges (APCs) are paid by the author or by their supporting institution. The APCs cover the costs of peer review, typesetting, web publication, and inclusion in many Open Access databases.

The APC for all published papers is as follows, plus VAT or local taxes where applicable:

APC CATEGORY I - Developing Countries

When is the APC payable?

APC payment is due upon acceptance of a manuscript and must be paid before production will begin. An invoice will be issued once your article has been accepted for publication after peer-review. There are no fees for submission or processing of the manuscript.

What is included in the article processing charges?

  • all online tools for authors and reviewers;
  • typesetting, editing, and formatting in PDF;
  • immediate open-access publication of each article;
  • announcement after publication through social media and opted-in newsletters;
  • indexing in international scientific databases and reference services;
  • article level usage metrics (in beta)
  • long-term e-archiving


CCS is committed to help researchers overcome any financial barriers to publication. In cases where the corresponding author is based in low-income countries (classified by World Bank) and genuinely do not have the means to pay our APCs, they can apply for partial or full waivers.

To show our appreciation all Editors of the journal are granted 15% discount on the APC.
