eCM council decided to implement an Article Publishing Charge (APC) on articles accepted for publication to help cover eCM running costs. eCM offers Gold Open Access to its papers, where articles are immediately available for others to read, download and share (e.g. can be uploaded on ResearchGate). The Submission fee (which covers external paper handling costs) will remain and all accepted papers will be charged upon publication. The APC has been set at $1000, much lower than journal in the same field (standard Open Access APC for journal's of similar impact factor is between $2000 and $4000). All papers submitted from July 1st 2018 are liable to the publication fee. eCM is a Not-for-Profit journal and does not make any profit with this system.

The European Research Council (ERC) and the The SNSF (Swiss National Science Foundation) are two of the funders of Europe PMC (Europe PubMed Central). ERC and SNSF are committed to open access. eCM, as an open access journal, is compliant for SNSF and ERC funded projects. Every eCM publication is held as a copy within this repository, which also has direct access to each paper on the eCM website. Europe PMC enriches the publications with information such as citation data and links from other databases. See eCM on European PMC. eCM is now indexed in the China Knowledge Resource Integrated (CNKI) Database.
