Open Access Statement

Punctum – International Journal of Semiotics is committed to real and immediate open access for academic work. All of the Punctum’s articles and reviews are free to access immediately from the date of publication. But for a minimal processing fee, aimed to cover only the cost of the domain name and the website’s content management/editing, there are no author charges (commonly known as APCs) prior to publication, and no charge for any reader to download articles and reviews for their own scholarly use. To facilitate this Punctum depends upon the goodwill of its editorial team and the continuing support of its network of peer reviewers.
