Michael Eisen did not hold back when he vented about academic publishing: ‘It’s still ludicrous how much it costs to publish research.’

Indeed, it is an inconvenient truth that most journals ask for fees under various names (article processing charge, article submission charge, manuscript handling fee, etc.). However, there are many publications where it’s absolutely free to publish. As the editor-in-chief of a free-to-publish journal (Psychreg Journal of Psychology). I know that it is possible to run a publication without charging any fees. 

Below is a list of journals relating to psychology, mental health, well-being, and related disciplines which do not charge any fees. This list is known 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 [email protected]
