Article Processing Charges

Structural Dynamics is an open access publication. Authors of published papers will be assessed an Article Processing Charge of 2750 USD, which covers the cost of publication and allows authors to retain copyright through a Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) license. This means that all articles published in Structural Dynamics are freely available to all readers, which gives authors the broadest distribution of their research possible. Through December 2019 the APC will be discounted to 2200 USD.

Waivers may be available for certain authors, for example, authors from low GDP countries or for those who may not have access to funds to cover the fee. Authors can request a waiver upon acceptance of their article.

Editors and reviewers have no access to author payment information and will not discuss charges with authors; therefor, an author’s ability to pay does not influence whether the editors accept a manuscript for publication.

We will send you information regarding the payment of publication charges after your manuscript is accepted for publication. For questions concerning Article Processing Charges, send an email to
