DeepLearning and Robotics) into systems that serve
mankind for the better and that are transparent in their
design and application.“

Article Processing Charge (APC) Paying Options

To cover the costs of publishing services, an article-processing charge (APC) is applied to all articles accepted for publication. Please note that authors are not expected to pay this charge from their own funds. Instead, the APC can be covered by external funding, the SpringerOpen Institutional Membership program, or SpringerNature’s waiver program. You will be guided to choose the appropriate option in the final step of the submission process.

Option 1: Author self-paying APC

The authors will pay the full charge of APC of their manuscript (EUR 1155 per paper). Self-paying authors will do so through Editorial Manager.

Option 2: SpringerOpen Fee Waiver request

Authors from SpringerOpen Membership institutions or from low income countries will be able to separately request waivers or discounts in Editorial Manager. For other countries, article-processing charge waivers or discounts are granted on a case-by-case basis to authors with insufficient funds.
