Article processing fees for too long articles
Kraków – March 5, 2018

The Decision of the Editorial Board concerning




Unfortunately we received too long articles and it made the publishing costs much higher. We are an open access journal with no articles submission fees (ASFs) nor article processing fees (APFs).


We remind that all submitted manuscripts should not exceed the recommended size in accordance with established rules up to 40 000 characters  (i.e. including tables, figures, references, author’s box at the end of the article, etc.).  Each Table and each Figure must be recalculated to characters based on its space. 


Cracow University of Economics subsidises all articles in EBER, as we do not sale the copyrights to the databases, so we have no profits at all.  The average real costs of the articles are high and they include linguistic copyediting (65% of total costs), proofreading, DTP (setting), printing, postal costs. Additionally we have fixed costs for maintaining the website and database, human resources costs. We are still trying not to charge any fees from the Authors, but we kindly ask you to respect the maximum length of the submitted articles.


Although no article submission or article processing fees are charged for preferred length of articles, nevertheless the fee for each additional up to 1800 characters (exceeding the first 40 000 characters) is 20 EUR + 23% VAT which is 24,60 EUR (or 105 PLN). For example if your article includes 42 100 characters you need to pay 49,20 EUR. The payment will be transferred to the Publisher’s bank account after the article’s approval for publication.


The fee for additional pages should be paid to:
