In 2009 KE commissioned a study investigating whether submission fees could play a role in a business model for Open Access journals.

The general conclusion of the report bearing the title ‘Submission Fees - a tool in the transition to open access?', written by Mark Ware, is that there are benefits to publishers in certain cases to switch to a model in which an author pays a fee when submitting an article.

The study explores risks and problems as well as the advantages offered by submission fees and presents a model that seems to best meet the requirements.
