Self-archiving in WRaP is free, but some journals provide gold open access and normally charge for this (an article processing charge or APC).

The current average charge (excl VAT) is about £1600, however this varies considerably by publisher and should be listed at the publisher’s website. SHERPA also provide a page giving information about publishers who have a paid open access option.
