Publishing Fees in Academia


Snell, Joel C., Noble, Claire, Mekies, Saul, Journal of Instructional Psychology


One of the authors reviewed available literature and analyzed issues dealing with publishing in academia with limited resources (Snell et. al 1976, Snell et. al. 1994.) One of the problems or opportunities now associated with publishing in higher education is the cost. Numerous high quality journals have discovered that to survive with diminishing resources, they must ask the author or authors to help pay for the printing and distribution of the article. Funds from the authors can not alone support the publication. Because they are not mass marketed, do not have major advertisers or associations to support them, expenses must be shared with the writers.

It is not uncommon, for college and universities to pay for publishing costs.(*)

These costs include pagination fees, manuscript reviewer fees, subscription costs, and mandatory membership if an association is in part sponsoring the journal.(**)

A selected list that has some form of publishing fee includes the following:

American Sociological Review, American Economic Review, Americas Review, Economica, Psychological Reports, Psychological Bulletin, Psychology: Journal of Human Behavior, Education, Journal of Instructional Psychology, Reading Improvement, College Student Journal, Sociological Abstracts, the late Southern Journal of Educational Research, Peace Research Abstracts, Peace Research, the late College Student Survey, Community College Social Science Survey, International Journal of Management, International Biographical Association Newsletter, American Journal of Sociology, Social Forces, Social Problems, American Ethnologist, Journal of Dairy Sciences, Journal of Integral Equations and Mathematics, Michigan Mathematical Journal, The Rocky.
