Rapid Publication

Timeline for Rapid Publication

Bentham Open provides the fastest way to publish papers, normally within 7 weeks on average from submission to online publication. We offer high-value and fast paced review process of 4 weeks to time-sensitive manuscripts and the average publication time of 10 days from the final acceptance of papers to their online publication.

Stages Average Timelines
Submission to acceptance   4-5 weeks               
Acceptance to Publication          1-2 weeks                 
Total Average Publication Time
Submission to Publication          7 weeks                

Standard reviewing practices will be followed, which will not in any way affect the acceptance or rejection of the manuscript by the reviewers. The final acceptance is subjected to rigorous and unbiased peer review. Peer review commences from the receipt of the agreement form.

As all the articles are processed on priority, the provided timelines depend upon the authors’ timely submission of the revised articles and return of proofs within 48 hrs.

Publication Fee

The publication fee for each published article submitted is US $950. Editors and reviewers have no access to whether authors are able to pay; decisions to publish are only based on meeting the editorial criteria. The fee form is also available on the Web site at FEE FORM.

Proof Corrections

The proofs will be delivered within 2 working days from return of copyright transfer form.

Authors are required to proofread the PDF versions of their manuscripts before submission. To avoid delays in publication, proofs should be carefully checked immediately for typographical errors as well as other mistakes in figures and returned within 48 hours. Major changes are not acceptable at the proof stage.


Subsequent submissions from the Bentham OPEN Authors will receive a discount of US$ 100 on the total publication charges provided their previous submission did not avail any discount on the listed full author open access fee.


High quality printed reprints of published articles are available for purchase, if ordered, with a minimum number of 25 reprints.

I am completely satisfied with the service I received from Bentham Science Publishers, right from the submission of our research paper in ‘Open Chemistry’ to its publication in the journal. The reviewers' and editor's comments were very helpful in improving the paper.

I take this opportunity to express my appreciation to the whole team of BSP!
