We are a non-commercial, not-for-profit company. Our fees are significantly lower than those of most open access publishers. Facing rising production costs, we had to choose between increasing fees or seeking alternative income sources. We opted for the latter.
Starting November 30, 2023, Exon Publications will begin a trial of automated contextual advertisements via Google AdSense to explore the possibility of additional revenue.
These advertisements are fully automated by Google and are independent of our editorial or publisher decisions. Exon Publications does not endorse any products or services advertised. Our editorial integrity remains unaffected by commercial interests, financial considerations, or specific agreements with advertisers or sponsors.
We highly value feedback from our authors and will closely monitor this initiative. Following a six-month trial period, we will evaluate the results to determine whether to continue with advertising or to increase our publishing fees.
