Open Access Option

EDP Sciences encourages and supports the publication of open access papers. In this optic, we present for the journal Mechanics & Industry , the service Open Access Option (OAO). It offers the possibility for authors to make their papers freely available to all interested readers (subscribers or non-subscribers) as soon as the articles are published online. By choosing Open Access, the authors agree to pay an article processing charge (APC) of 1100 euros (without VAT) in 2017 (after the article is accepted).

Copyright on any article published with the Open Access Option in Mechanics & Industry is retained by the author(s) under the Creative Commons license, which permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction provided the original work is properly cited.

If the Author intends to publish her/his paper in Open Access, she/he must return the Licence Agreement form that will be provided with the proofs.
