Payment of the publication fee
To uphold the operation of Quantum we do need some level of financial support, partly ensured by small publication fees. For papers submitted on or after 1st of May 2020 the regular publication fee is 450€. You can also choose to pay the discount publication fee of 100€. In addition, we offer a complete waiver of the entire fee for authors who need it. There is no need to justify your need for a waiver, but for accounting purposes please let us know if you would like to get the publication fee waived.
In case you need an invoice and have not yet received one, please use this form to request your invoice. Requests for invoices are handled manually, thus it can take a few days before the invoice is issued.
We currently offer three payment options:
- You can pay with credit card via Stripe:
If you are paying via Stripe on behalf of an author (e.g., as a university administrator), please include the author’s name in the billing address.
- You can pay through PayPal using the form below either with your PayPal account or your regular credit card. Paying with credit card and without creating a PayPal account is a bit counterintuitive: after clicking “PAY NOW WITH PAYPAL” you must choose “Continue” and then select “Create an account”. You can then enter your credit card details and pay as a “guest” without creating a proper account on PayPal.
Paypal generates a receipt for you automatically.
- You can transfer the publication fee via wire transfer to:
