A: Currently, we do not accept applications from individual researchers. We usually provide the funds to existing research projects managed by universities or research institutions.

Q: What’s your business model for journal publishing? Why do you have publication fees?

A: We follow the Gold Open Access way. This means that authors publish in our journals that provide immediate open access for readers to all articles on the publisher’s website. The readers pay nothing, while authors (or their institutions or funders) pay a publishing fee to maintain the journal operation.

Q: Can you waive or reduce the publication fee?

A: We charge authors a publication fee for each article they publish. This fee helps the open-access journals to cover their operational expenses. To avoid confusion and ensure fairness among customers, we do not waive or reduce publication fees to anyone, including the editorial board member and the author of the special issue.

Q: How do you use the publication fee from authors?

A: As an open-access publisher, CCSE charges a publication fee to cover the publication costs, which covers but is not limited to the following:

  • Printing
  • Mailing (two copies of printed journals will be sent to the corresponding author after published, free of charge)
  • DOI fee (We assign a DOI name to each article)
  • CrossCheck/iThenticate fees
  • Maintenance fee (article online hosting and backup)
  • Labor costs (Call for papers, author services, managing peer-review, editing, publishing, and other direct works)
  • Banking service
  • Marketing and advertisement
  • Trademark fee

Q: How do you detect the plagiarism in submissions?

A: We have a policy of “Zero Tolerance on Plagiarism.” We use CrossCheck (powered by iThenticate) to check submissions for plagiarism.

Q: What’s your policy on self-plagiarism?

A: Attitudes about self-plagiarism vary in the academic community. However, our policy is that self-plagiarism is still plagiarism, and, like all reputable publishers, we do not tolerate it.

Q: Do your journals have Impact Factor or H-index?

A: It depends on the specific journal. Please visit each journal’s website for details.

Publication Policies

Copyright Policy

Copyrights for articles are retained by the authors, with first publication rights granted to the journal/publisher. Authors have rights to reuse, republish, archive, and distribute their own articles after publication. The journal/publisher is not responsible for subsequent uses of the work. Authors shall permit the publisher to apply a DOI to their articles and to archive them in databases and indexes such as EBSCO, DOAJ, and ProQuest.

Open-access Policy

We follow the Gold Open Access way in journal publishing. This means that our journals provide immediate open access for readers to all articles on the publisher’s website. The readers, therefore, are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, link to the full texts or use them for any other lawful purpose. The operations of the journals are alternatively financed by publication fees paid by authors or by their institutions or funding agencies.

All articles published are open-access articles distributed under the terms and conditions of the Creative Commons Attribution license.

Submission Policy

Submission of an article implies that the work described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis), that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication is approved by all authors and tacitly or explicitly by the authorities responsible where the work was carried out. However, we accept submissions that have previously appeared on preprint servers (for example: arXiv, bioRxiv, Nature Precedings, Philica, Social Science Research Network, and Vixra); have previously been presented at conferences; or have previously appeared in other “non-journal” venues (for example: blogs or posters). Authors are responsible for updating the archived preprint with the journal reference (including DOI) and a link to the published articles on the appropriate journal website upon publication.

The publisher and journals have a zero-tolerance plagiarism policy. We check the issue using two methods: a plagiarism prevention tool (iThenticate) and a reviewer check. All submissions will be checked by iThenticate before being sent to reviewers.

We insist a rigorous viewpoint on the self-plagiarism. The self-plagiarism is plagiarism, as it fails to contribute to the research and science.

Deposit Policy / Archiving Policy

We follow Sherpa/Romeo's green archiving policy. Both pre-print and post-print or publisher's version/PDF can be archived, without restrictions.

Waiver Policy

We charge authors a publication fee for each article they publish. The charges vary from journal to journal; please find the exact amount required on the journal's webpage. This fee helps the open-access journals to cover their operational expenses. To avoid confusion and ensure fairness among customers, we do not waive or reduce publication fees to anyone, including the editorial board member and the author of the special issue.
