Open Access

JEN is an open access journal whereby all manuscripts are required to undergo the peer review process. Accepted peer-reviewed manuscripts are open access immediately after publication and are assigned a DOI number and can be downloaded, cited, and shared.

Article Processing Charge (APC)

NOTE: Beginning October 1, 2021, all APCs will be the same rate of $350 USD. 

For professional authors there is a nominal article processing charge of $350 USD that must be paid after a manuscript has been “accepted” following the peer review process. If a manuscript is accepted for publication, an email including a payment link will be sent to the corresponding author. Manuscripts will not be published by JEN until payment is received and processed. 

Graduate Student 1st Author APC

For graduate student 1st author manuscripts there is a nominal article processing charge of $150 USD. First authors must be a current graduate student and the reduced fee does not apply to graduate student coauthors. After a manuscript has been “accepted” following the peer review process, JEN must confirm graduate student status prior to processing and then publication. Manuscripts will not be published by JEN until payment is received and processed.
