Payment of some or all of the estimated publication charges associated with an article is voluntary. The editorial review of articles and administration of publication charges are separate activities. Manuscripts are reviewed and accepted prior to soliciting publication charges.

IMS encourages authors to use available grant or institutional funds to contribute to publication charges. Funds from publication charges go to support IMS journals directly by allowing the IMS to keep subscription prices low and to provide open electronic access to some journals. Publication charges are billed at: $950 for articles in any Print/Gated Electronic Access journal; $550 for articles appearing in an Open Electronic Access journal; $100 for any discussion in any journal. Partial payment (in any amount) of publication charges will be gratefully accepted if full payment is not possible.

Immediate open access is automatically granted on any article for which full publication charges are paid.
