We are excited to share with you that, Virologica Sinica will become a fully open access (OA) journal in 2022, for a faster publishing, greater visibility, and wider connection.
For a faster publication, once your article is accepted, it will be directly published in the form of pre-proof on the ScienceDirect domain of Elsevier, the host platform of Virologica Sinica's publishing partner KeAi Communications.
Upon switching to OA publishing, there is an article publishing charge (APC) of USD $1500 (or EUR €1300, or CNY ¥9000) per article. However, the APC fee only applies to submissions after 1 January 2022, and articles submitted before yr2022 still comply with the previous standard.
For any concern or inquiry, please do not hesitate to contact us.
