Article Publication Charges
To partly cover publication costs of the papers, the Estonian Academy Publishers charges a publication fee of €250 per publication of papers up to 20 printed pages. The publication fee of articles up to 20 printed pages will be waived by the Estonian Academy of Sciences to the authors whose work was supported by Estonian granting agencies or other Estonian funding bodies and the authors have explicitly stated this information in the Acknowledgement section. For all longer papers than 20 printed pages an additional page charge of €40 will be requested for each extra page. The Editorial Board has right to release authors from paying publication fee if article has high scientific value. Requests for waivers of publication and/or excess page fees should be presented in the Covering Letter. Herewith, information about support received from the Estonian Academy of Sciences should appear in the Acknowledgements of the article.
Authors will be asked to pay the full cost for reproduction of colour artwork at a rate of €35 for one printed page (online-only colour illustrations are free of charge).
When submitting an article to the Oil Shale, the submitting author must agree to pay the publication fee and state this in the Cover Letter. After acceptance of the article the authors will be asked to pay the publication fee and this payment must be received before the article enters the production cycle. Payment should be made in Euro to the bank account indicated by the Estonian Academy Publishers.
