Article Publication Charges
To partly cover the publication costs the Estonian Academy Publishers charges a publication fee of 250 euro for articles of up to 20 printed pages.
The fee will be waived by the Estonian Academy of Sciences to authors whose articles are based on studies supported by Estonian funding bodies (provided the specifics are explicitly declared by the author in the Acknowledgements) or who address priority topics in Estonian and Finno-Ugric cultures. Requests for waivers of publication and/or excess page fees should be presented in the Cover Letter. Herewith, information about support received from the Estonian Academy of Sciences will appear in the Acknowledgements of the article.
Readers in general benefit most from research publications that are thorough yet concisely presented. As handling, editorial and production costs are directly correlated with article length, manuscripts of reasonable length are preferred. Longer papers are accepted provided the authors are willing to cover the excess costs.
Authors are invited to pay the standard journal fee and the excess page fee after acceptance. No handling fee is applied to manuscripts rejected by the publisher. Banking data will be sent to authors together with an acceptance note. Payment should be normally made in Euros to the bank account of the Estonian Academy Publishers. Prompt payment is advised, as the article will not be sent to the production cycle until payment is received.

“Fast track” publication
After final decision on manuscript acceptance has been made, authors may choose an option to apply for “fast track” publishing. In that case the paper will be included in the next issue under the process of publication. The author will be invited to cover the relevant extra costs, that is, to pay the double standard article fee and excess page fee prior to publication.
Colour illustrations should be in CMYK mode (resolution at least 300 dpi). Authors will be asked to cover the full cost for reproduction of colour artwork at a rate of 35 EUR for one sheet (two printed pages). Colour figures online will be published free of charge.
