Voluntary publication fees


Starting from the 2024, the TSR upgrades its financing model introducing voluntary publication fees. The authors of accepted manuscripts are encouraged to support the journal by providing a ‘fair compensation’ for the services they have received. Several fee levels are available (including ‘none’), and the author's choice will not affect the editorial decisions and the processing time.

Please, read more about the new financial model, as well as the motivation for it, here.

Note on the transition period: Authors who submitted their manuscripts before 2024, as well the authors of the ICSC 2023 special issue, are not expected to make any payments. You may still receive some automatic emails regarding that—in this case, just ignore them.
