ARTICLE PROCESSING CHARGES (APCs)



Periódico Tchê Química is a self supporting organization and does not receive funding from any institution/government. Hence, the management of the Journals is solely financed by the Article Processing Charges (APCs) received from authors. The manuscript APCs are required to meet operations expenses such as:

Editorial work:



1. PUBLICATION FEES:
a) Rugular publication fee - USD 750
b) Brazilian authors, R$ 600.


1.1. Fee for manuscript submission:
a) Up to 1 manuscript - USD 0,00
b) More than 1 manuscript - USD 100 per manuscript. The review process will start after the confirmation of payment of the submission fee.

2. Additional fees of publication
a) Proofreading and/or plagiarism

If the submitted manuscript has more than 100 grammatical errors or plagiarism greater than 5%, a fee of USD 200 will be charged. This fee does not guarantee publication of the manuscript and is non-refundable.

b) Changing PDF pre-printing files

After the final verification of the manuscript and the generation of the PDF pre-print file, a fee of USD 200 will be charged to authors who wish to make any changes. For each new change, the fee is charged again.

c) Acceptance Letter for article publication

The acceptance letter is an optional service of the Journal. If the authors need a document to prove that their article has been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication, they may request, upon payment of a fee of USD 250, an acceptance letter for publication of the article.

NOTE 1: THE LETTER OF ACCEPTANCE may be issued if, and only if, the article has undergone a complete peer-review and is considered ACCEPTED for publication. Letters will NOT be issued for newly sent articles that have not yet been appropriately evaluated and peer-reviewed.

NOTE 2: The Journal does not agree with the trade-in documents that can attest to the publication of articles that have not gone through the due process of peer-review and are legitimately considered approved for publication in the subsequent edition.

NOTE 3: THE LETTER OF ACCEPTANCE may be revoked at any time if, concerns about the manuscript emerge.


If there is no need, additional fees are not charged.

3. Free publication
a) Young scientists that are publishing the first manuscript of their career. Requirements: Copy of the curriculum without publications; maximum of 2 authors; one manuscript previously accepted in the Southern Brazilian Journal of Chemistry (the manuscript may be from the author or from colleagues, provided that the extra purpose of the collaboration is notified at the time of submission), or two manuscripts previously accepted in the Journal of Law, Public Policies, and Human Sciences (manuscripts may be from the author or from colleagues, provided that the extra purpose of the collaboration is notified at the time of submission);

b) Members of the Editorial Board (Advisory Board and Scientific Council) of the Journal;

c) Longtime collaborators. Authors who have published 4 manuscripts (paid your full corresponded price) at Periódico Tchê Química, the fifth (5th) manuscript will be free of charge. After that, this cycle starts again, that is, for every five (5) articles published, one will be free of publication fees.

d) Paper considered by the Editors of high quality, priority, and relevance for the development of the society shall pay no fees. Note that this condition is a small recognition prize, not something that you may request.
