  • RCR wants to keep its contents open access. Still, we need to pay for some necessary technical products (e.g., monthly webspace, server support, DOI numbers) and technical collaborators (e.g., copy editors, proofreaders, designers, computer specialists). Therefore, RCR invites you to pay an optional fair production fee if a manuscript is accepted for publication and you have department or research project funds. Follow the link below and read the complete information:
    In case you can not or are unwilling to pay the optional APC, please, accept reviewing 6 manuscripts for the same section where you publish your paper. Thank you for collaborating!

Production Charges

RCR wants to keep its content open access. However, we need to pay collaborators for their work in the publication process (e.g., webspace, technical maintenance, DOI registration and maintenance, copyedit, layout design). Therefore, RCR has to charge a fair fee for production. Click on the link and check if you are eligible for a fee waiver or a discount (e.g., members of the Editorial Board, ad-hoc reviewers). If you do not qualify and the fee is expensive for you, write to us and ask for a discount or waiver before submitting the manuscript. Tell us your case! We may help you. here
