Open Access with no Publication Fees
Appraisal is an open access journal with no subscription charges. There are also no fees payable by the author or research funder to cover the costs associated with publication. Your article will be immediately and permanently free to access by everyone. Publication costs are met by the generous donations of members and others wishing to support the ideas and values of Personalism.
Plan S is an initiative for open-access science publishing launched by Science Europe on 4th September 2018. The plan requires scientists and researchers who benefit from state-funded research organisations and institutions to publish their work in open repositories or in journals that are available to all by 2021. The British Personalist Forum fully supports Plan S and we believe that research should be freely available and also free to publish to the benefit of everyone.
