This post from 2012 is in the process of being updated. In it I look at fees that are charged to the authors of all submissions, including those that are rejected. I list some journals that charged submission fees at that time and consider how reasonable this kind of fee is.
Cofactor provides publishing training for researchers, supporting them to write and publish research papers effectively.
Cofactor’s founder, Anna Sharman, has been a biologist, journal editor and publishing consultant.
She saw that what publishers wanted was different from what researchers submitted, and wanted to help researchers navigate the publication process.
