Applied Artificial Intelligence

An Open Access Journal

Applied Artificial Intelligence is converting to Open Access from its 2022 volume. 

Applied Artificial Intelligence focuses on research on artificial intelligence, including applications to solve engineering, administration and education tasks, and evaluations of AI systems. 

It plans to foster the immediate and widescale dissemination of research results through adoption of an  Open Access (OA) model. Every submission will continue to be subject to the usual vigorous reviewing process, and to help with this process, the journal has a strong editorial board of prominent and respected academics from a diverse regional and institutional background.  

As part of this transition, all manuscripts received going forward will proceed through Applied Artificial Intelligence’s new Open Access submission portal. Authors who submit after 11th May 2021 will be required to pay an article publishing charge (APC) which can be covered by an author’s funder or institution. The publisher and editors have taken every step to ensure that Author Processing Charges (APCs) associated with Open Access publication do not become a prohibiting factor for publication of high-quality papers through introduction of a very competitive pricing scheme as well as setting up a  APC discount or waiver initiative. The standard article publishing charge will be USD 1545/GBP 1190/EUR 1365/AUD 2070 with opportunities for  funding support.   

Interested authors should visit the Taylor & Francis Open Access Members  and  Open Access Agreements pages in case they are based at an institution that may have funds available to authors wishing to publish in Applied Artificial Intelligence. Interested readers may also want to consider signing up to receive latest article alerts to keep up-to-date with the latest research published in the Journal. 

We look forward to receiving your submissions and hope you join us to embrace Applied Artificial Intelligence’s Open Access future. 

Applied Artificial Intelligence is particularly interested in receiving manuscripts which highlight advances in uses of AI systems for solving tasks in management, industry, engineering, administration, and education; evaluations of existing AI systems and tools, emphasizing comparative studies and user experiences; and the economic, social, and cultural impacts of AI.  

There is a comprehensive description of the journal scope as well as a clear set of instructions for authors in the journal website.
