Are open access journals free to publish?
In the gold open access model, you pay an article publishing charge (APC), making your article immediately, permanently, and freely available for anyone to access, read, and build upon. In many cases, your institution or research funder will pay the APC on your behalf.
What happens after a paper is accepted?
When your manuscript is accepted for publication, the corresponding author receives the proofs of your manuscript. Once the corresponding author approves these, your article is compiled into an issue of the journal and is published in its final form.
How long does it take Nature to review a paper?
Each review is due in ten days, and many of them do arrive in two weeks. Some may take much longer, and this will hold up the submission if other reviews are positive. If another full round of reviews is needed (I actually requested one due to substantive changes), it can take as long.
