AUDT is an open access (OA) journal which means that all content is freely available without charge to the user or his/her institution. Users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author. This is in accordance with the BOAI (Budapest Open Access Initiative) definition of open access.
Article Processing Charge (APC)
As costs are involved in every stage of the publication process, from peer review to copy editing and hosting the final article on dedicated servers, authors will be asked to pay an APC in order for their article to be published open access. By paying the APC, authors can post the final, published PDF of their article on a non-commercial website, institutional repository or other non-commercial free public server, immediately on publication.
APC in AUDT
Currently, Advances in Ultrasound Diagnosis and Therapy (AUDT) does not charge article processing and publication fees for each article published. There are no article submission charges, either.
