Instructions for Authors

After Acceptance

Payment of publication fee

Authors will be asked to pay the article processing charge (APC), EUR2200 (or CNY15000) per paper. Once the APC is paid, the publisher will start the process of the accepted paper as early as possible.


License agreement

Authors will be asked to sign a license agreement of the article to the Publisher. This will ensure the widest possible protection and dissemination of information under copyright laws.

Proof reading

The purpose of the proof is to check for typesetting errors and the completeness and accuracy of the text, tables, and figures. Substantial changes in content, e.g., new results, corrected values, title, and authorship, are not allowed without the approval of the Editor-in-Chief. After online publication, further changes can only be made in the form of an Erratum, which will be hyperlinked to the article.

Online first

The article will be published online after receipt of the corrected proofs. This is the official first publication citable with the DOI. After release of the printed version, the paper can also be cited by issue and page numbers.
