Submit a Gold Open Access Journal Proposal

    This proposal form is for those wishing to launch a new journal publication for the AsiaCALL Press. The Applicant should be either an editor or a managing editor.


    This proposal is for a gold open-access journal, meaning that all the content contained within the journal will be freely available to the user or his/her institution without charge. Users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles or use them for any other lawful purpose without asking the publisher's or the author's prior permission. This is in accordance with the BOAI definition of open access.


    Publishing a gold open-access journal with AsiaCALL Press requires the existence of a funding body to support the cost needed to maintain publishing services for the journal.

    Funding provided for the journal will be used to offset the cost of the Article Processing Charge (APC). All the articles are published under a Creative Commons (CC BY) license; therefore, the authors or funding body will pay a one-time APC to offset the costs of all the activities associated with the publication of the article manuscript.


    The copyright of all articles, books, proceedings, and book chapters published in AsiaCALL Press remains with the Authors, i.e., Authors retain full ownership of their article. Permitted third-party reuse of the open-access articles is defined by the applicable Creative Commons (CC) end-user license, which the Authors accept upon submission of their paper. All articles in these proceedings are published under the CC BY-NC 4.0 license, meaning that end users can freely share an article (i.e., copy and redistribute the material in any medium or format) and adapt it (i.e., remix, transform, and build upon the material) on the condition that proper attribution is given (i.e., appropriate credit, a link to the applicable license and an indication if any changes were made; all in such a way that does not suggest that the licensor endorses the user or the use) and the material is only used for non-commercial purposes. For more information, please refer to the Open Access and User Licenses section in the Atlantis Press Open Access & Article Sharing policy.
