Though I do wonder what experiences led them to charge for extra emails:
We discourage any lengthy-frequent-repetitive contacts with this journal. For the complexity of AEQ review process see Flowchart. The Journal’s ten year publishing experience suggests maximum 8 e-mail/postal contacts
between the author and AEQ as the norm
- 1) submission
- 2) submission clarification
- 3) copyright
- 4) extra contact
You must complete the above 3 in maximum 4 e-mail/postal contacts. Otherwise, your submission
will be rejected or rescheduled for consideration until the next available issue.
- 5) reviews
- 6) reviews clarification
- 7) final copy
- 8) extra contact
Exceeding eight contacts may disqualify your submission from further consideration or require $45 redactory fee. as it drives up journal’s administrative cost above the
forty-fivefifty-seven dollars average per one submission.
Hence, in order to work efficiently, we had to establish “eight contacts limit” per one submission.
Love the strikethrough of the “
forty-five” in the last paragraph. “See how much our costs are going up!”
Are there charges for facebooking them? Twitter?
