New Advance online publication

Foreign authors of articles submitted in January 2021 or later must pay the same publication fee (Member*, US $60 per printed page; Non-member, US $80 per printed page ) as Japanese authors. However, the publication fee for authors from Least Developed Countries remains at US $100 per article (see below). The reason is that the number of submitted articles from abroad has increased greatly from year to year, so the burden of publishing expenses of FSTR journal is increasing. In order to keep the publication of the FSTR journal financially sound in the future, it is necessary to raise the publication fee. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
