∼ A message from Iwao Matsuda, Editor-in-chief of eJSSNT. ∼
There is an increasing demand that research papers are accessible free of charge. To make a paper open access, many commercial and noncommercial journals require authors to pay an article processing charge (APC), which is typically between 150,000 yen and 700,000 yen. Our eJSSNT was launched in 2003 as an electronic open access journal with a reasonable APC (10,000 yen) using J-STAGE as a publication platform. For the last 15 years, 1,280 articles have been published and 620,000 downloads are recorded. By these achievements, the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) features our activity, and my interview article was published in J-STAGE NEWS No. 40 (the interview article was written in Japanese).
Our journal is suitable to publicize outputs of your steady researches as well as your brand-new research results that the community is not yet ready to accept. I persuade you to use eJSSNT as a platform to disclose your challenging ideas and inspiration, which may catch Nobel Committee!
