Page Charges and Offprints

To cover a part of print cost, all authors in Japan are invited to buy at least 50 offprints of their papers, and all overseas authors are invited to pay a page charge. In some cases, it is possible, to discount or exempt from the page charge when International Information Institute approves. The offprints charge includes basic charge with 50 offprints and additional charge for more than 50 offprints.

Offprints Charge = (Page Numbers * JPY 6000) (Basic Charge) + (Copy Numbers - 50) * JPY 200 (Additional Charge)

where, the page numbers will be counted as the least even number more than real page numbers in the journal. It is desirable to please order offprints with times of 50. For example, to order 100 offprints with 7 pages paper, the charge becomes

(8 * JPY 6000) + (100 - 50) * JPY 200 = JPY 58000.
