IMechE APCs for open access publishing


Applied Sciences
31 Dec 2024

EIFL has negotiated waived Article Processing Charges (APCs) for authors from EIFL partner countries when they publish in one of the journals from the Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). IMechE publishes 18 titles, which include the 16-part Proceedings of the IMechE, as well as The Journal of Strain Analysis for Engineering Design and the International Journal of Engine Research. In addition, authors from countries that have an active subscription can publish at a reduced APC. 

Below are the agreed terms: 

  • Waived article processing charges - no fees for corresponding authors from: Albania, Armenia, Botswana, Congo, Côte d'Ivoire, Ethiopia, Fiji, Georgia, Ghana, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Lesotho, Malawi, Myanmar, Nepal, Senegal, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, Uzbekistan, Zambia, Zimbabwe
  • Discounted APC of 200 GBP for corresponding authors from the following institutions in Lithuania that have an active subscription to the IMechE Journals collection: 
    • Kaunas University of Technology, Vilnius Gediminas Technical University

The APC discount cannot be combined with any other discount available (for example, but not limited to: society membership discounts, introductory offers or article processing charges waivers). In the case of multiple discount rates being available, SAGE will honour the single greatest discount available to the author.

The waiver or discount is automatically applied as SAGE’s system will recognise an eligible corresponding author’s affiliation to eligible countries or institutions.
If the waiver or discount has not been applied, please email and the SAGE team will investigate the issue.
