Article Processing Charge

The association Science2 supports a new open access model. The APC (€100/article + VAT) supports this model by:

  • reverting back most of the funds collected to Science, providing fellowships and grants to talented young researchers (see

Thus, the Chemistry2 APC:

  • makes the article permanently and freely available online
  • is only due if the article is accepted for publication. It should be pointed out that there is no additional charges for colour figures or number of pages
  • is handled by administration staff who are not involved with the peer review process and acceptance/rejection decision
  • enables Science2 to provide grants to excellent young scientists from all over the world.
