Q: How do I write to the journal asking for a discount on the APC?
I plan to submit a mansuscript to a scientific journal. I need to ask the journal to give me a discount on APC while submission. Can you give me an example of how to ask for such a discount?
Your email to the editor should include the following details:
- Your manuscript title and id
- Names and affiliations of the corresponding author and co-authors
- An explanation of why you need the discount or are unable to pay the APC
This handbook on Templates for communicating with the journal includes a template that you can use for writing your APC waiver request.
