Gratis Index: Psychology Journals Without Publication Fee

Published: Last updated:
Reading Time: 4 minutes

Michael Eisen voiced strong criticism of academic publishing, saying: “It’s still outrageous how much it costs to publish research.” This highlights a problematic reality – many journals impose fees in various forms, such as article processing charges, submission charges, or handling fees. However, some publications offer free publishing options. As chief editor of Psychreg Journal of Psychology, a fee-free journal, I can attest that running such a publication without fees is feasible.

Here is a list of journals in psychology and related fields that do not charge any fees for publication. This list is referred to as the Gratis Index.


If you have evidence that a publication should not be listed on Gratis Index or you would like to recommend a publication for inclusion, please send email to dennis@psychreg.org

Inclusion criteria

  • Absolutely no fees
  • The scope of the publication must be within psychology, mental health, well-being, and allied fields.
