Publication Charges

The Journal of Behavioral Data Science does not charge any submission fees or page charges for the electronic format. Authors and libraries can order and subscribe to the printed journal if needed. If a submission adheres to our guidelines, no fee should be incurred. However, significant formatting and copyediting of a manuscript may incur fees. Please review the following details carefully:

Light copyediting (less than 4 corrections per double-spaced page) and formatting (conversion from other LaTeX styles to JBDS style with 30 minutes of work) are provided free of charge.

Conversion from Word or other formats to LaTeX incurs a fee of $10 per page (text only, double-spaced, additional $5 with ¼ or fewer formulas, additional $10 with more than ¼ formulas); tables or figures incur a fee of $5 each. Authors will be informed and billed in advance and will have the option to do the conversion themselves.

Heavy copyediting, such as rewriting and significant grammatical error correction, incurs a fee of $30 per page (around 500 words per page). Authors will be informed and billed in advance for this service.

All fees will only be charged after a manuscript has been accepted but before publication.
