My PhD advisor and lab colleagues think that Springer, IEEE and Elsevier journals non-open-access charge authors for publishing a paper. (They usually only publish in local journals.) All the info I’ve found points to the contrary (except for “gold” open access journals, which do charge authors), but all I’ve found are people commenting on particular journals saying that they do not charge.
I’m sorry if it’s a stupid question, but I can’t for the life of me find any definitive yes/no information online. (I don’t have a concrete journal in mind since this all started because we are looking for one, but it’d have to be a machine learning/artificial intelligence journal.)
Do Springer, IEEE and Elsevier journals charge an author fee for their non-open-access journals? It may include submission fees or post-acceptance fees as well as page or figure charges.
