Reduced Fees!


Reduced author fees and NO Color Charges - for an average savings of about $800/article in JMD.

Authors will be charged $100 per page; ASIP Regular Members will pay only $90 per page. These fees are regardless of color or supplemental data inclusion, both of which are now free.

To maintain uniformity in presentation within an article and throughout an issue, color will be limited to scientifically necessary usage, with a preference for black/white/gray fill in bar graphs. However, we encourage the use of color in schematic and model illustrations.
