Waived IMECHE APCs for Authors from Kenya

APCEIFL has renewed its agreement with SAGE for the IMechE journals from the Institute of Mechanical Engineering, and the renewed agreement includes open access publishing terms for authors which guarantees a waiver (100% discount) on Article Processing Charges for authors from Kenya when publishing an article in one of the IMechE journals.

The agreement runs until December 2024, and the offer is available to CORRESPONDING authors.

How to claim the waiver:

They will then be returned to an updated version of the charges page, where the net total will be updated to reflect the waiver.
