Resuming the Publication Fee Waiver
Beginning April 1, 2010, we resume the waiver of the publication fee
for manuscripts submitted electronically as PTPTeX files, which we had
been offering until September 30, 2008 to commemorate the centennial
birthdays of Hideki Yukawa and Sin-itiro Tomonaga and to celebrate the
completion of the online archive.
We would be happy if this offer encourages the submission of many
fine papers to our journal.
Despite the resumption of this special offer, we will gratefully accept
the publication fee from authors who wish to support PTP financially.
Also, authors paying no publication fee who wish for Progress to handle
the proofreading of their manuscripts will be charged a fee for this
In the case that the publication fee is paid, the authors are exempted
from the reprint fee for 50 copies, conversion fee and proofreading fee
(see formulas below to determine these fees). The publication fee is
equal to the reprint fee for 50 copies. In the case that more than 100
copies are ordered, an additional fee is charged.
In the case of exemption from publication fee, manuscripts accepted for
publication that have been submitted in forms other than PTPTeX (LaTex,
plain TeX, Word, etc.) will be converted into PTPTeX by the Editorial
Office for the following fees at the author's request (reprint fee not
- LaTeX, plain TeX: 2,000 × p yen
- Word (or other non-TeX file): 4,000 × p yen
(Here, p represents the total number of pages of the manuscript in
PTPTeX format. )
The fee for reprints is determined as follows:
3000 p + 200 p × ( x / 50 ) + 1,000 yen,
where x is the number of reprints ordered (in units of 50) and 1,000
yen is shipping cost.
Proofreading fee is: 1,000 yen/printed page (only for authors paying
no publication charge).
In the case that any other fees apply, they will be charged according
to the usual rates.
During the period of this special offer, the exemption from the
publication fee that we normally offer to post-doctoral researchers
will not be in effect.
The above conditions for waving of publication fee are applied for the
papers submitted from April 1, 2010.
The Progress of Theoretical Physics will be reborn in
January, 2013 to become a new journal covering also genuine experimental
physics papers which will be fully published by the Physical Society of
Japan (JPS). Although the publisher is changed, the back issues of PTP
of course remains to be precious heritage of JPS so that the readers can
read them on-line as before on the Web which JPS has been and will keep
