Publication Charges and Reprints for Physical Review Letters
To help defray editorial and production expenses, authors of published Letters are expected to pay a publication charge of $690 ($240 for a Comment or Reply). Charges are higher ($850 for a Letter, $310 for a Comment or Reply) for those that are not submitted in an acceptable electronic format. Acceptable formats are REVTeX (preferred), LaTeX, plain TeX, MS Word; PostScript figures (preferred). Upon acceptance, authors will receive a unique link to the Copyright Clearance Center's (CCC) RightsLink system. APS has partnered with CCC to provide our authors with an online, web-based interface, RightsLink, to pay for various author charges, including applicable publication charges. Charges for color figures and reprints are separate from these publication charges.
