Policy change: publication charges

SACJ is introducing a publication charge, initially R6000, as of 1 July 2012, for new papers submitted. Authors are invoiced when a paper is accepted, at which time, should they have no funding available for this purpose, they may motivate to the editor at whose discretion the charge may be waived. In general authors at South African universities with a strong cash flow from subsidized research publications should be able to pay (contact your Research Office).
