Authors are required to pay a publication fee in order to share in the costs of production. The fee will be asked if and when the article is accepted for publication. Once full payment has been made (PayPal only), the paper will be published at the Ahead of Print and scheduled for the next available issue. All waivers (as well as the publication fees requests) are applied to the accepted papers after successful peer-review only.
