What is Open Access?
A growing number of countries require Open Access to publicly-funded research. If an AES paper has been made Open Access it will have the OA logo next to it and will be freely downloadable from the AES E-Library by anyone, even if they're not an AES member or E-Library subscriber. An Open Access paper can also be distributed by the author and by third parties.
After surveying our past AES authors we found that a majority were interested in having the option of publishing their work in Open Access (OA). Authors who choose this option will receive greater visibility and ease of access to their AES publications. A paper opted for OA will be charged a publication fee to be paid by the author or the author's sponsor (employer, funding agency, etc.). AES members and sustaining members will receive a substantial discount. The JAES plans to be both a conventional journal (with copyright agreement signed) and OA, thus an author can choose either of the publishing options.
AES Open Access Publication Fees
Journal paper (less than 3 years old) - $1200 (with a $150 member discount)
Journal paper (older than 3 years old) - $600 (with $150 member discount)
Peer-reviewed convention/conference paper - $300 (with $50 member discount)
Non-peer-reviewed convention/conference paper - $150 (with $50 member discount)
Note about convention/conference papers: If a convention/conference paper is made open access (OA), and later submitted to the Journal, the author has to pay the difference between the OA fee of a Journal paper and the OA fee of a convention/conference paper before it can be published in the Journal. If the author does not pay the fee, he/she can also agree to give back the copyright of the convention/conference paper to the AES (without refund of the OA fee).
