APC and Sponsorship Policy

Article Processing Charges

All articles published in the AIEJ are open access and freely available online, immediately upon publication. However, unlike other open-access journals, the AIEJ is currently operating on a no APC format. This is made possible by our AIEJ Sponsors who help cover the range of publishing services we provide. This includes the provision of online tools for editors and authors, article production and hosting, liaison with abstracting and indexing services, and customer services. As such, there is currently no APC or other associated fees with publishing in the AIEJ for the foreseeable future. However, the AIEJ reserves the right to switch to an APC model in the future should our main funding source be limited or discontinued.

AIEJ Sponsors

The AIEJ would like to thank the following individuals and organizations for sponsoring the AIEJ's no APC model to provide free access to both authors and readers alike:

  • The AI Robotics Ethics Society (AIRES)

  • Ned Finkle (NVIDIA)

  • Wai Min Liu (Teknex Corporation)
