Article Publication Fee (APF)

POSITRON is an open access journal allowing readers to freely read, download, copy or distribute the full text of all published articles.

However, we charge authors who publish their articles in the journal to support the publishing and reviewing process.

After the paper is accepted for publication, authors will be asked to pay an Article Publication Fee (APF) with the following details
APF =  Rp 1.000.000,-  (Non PSI* Member)
APF = Rp 800.000,-  (Active PSI* Member, proven by valid membership card)

*PSI = Physical Society of Indonesia

APF covers:

  • Printing cost of the journal's hardcopy
  • Dispatch charges (via post/shipping courier)
  • Digital Object Identifier (DOI) submission
  • Costs in the editorial process and journal production (article screening/precheck, refereeing/peer review, copyediting and proofreading, article and journal layout and design)
  • Web management, maintaining, and updating.

If the authors do not have funds to pay the APF, there is an opportunity to waive the fee. We do not want the cost to prevent the publication of worthy work.
