To identify themselves when submitting their articles corresponding authors must use their institutional affiliation (ideally with an ORCID iD), including an institutional email address where possible.

When the corresponding author receives the acceptance email from World Scientific, they should reply to the sender (which is usually the handling editor) and inform them about the waiver or discount eligibility. If the waiver or discount has not been applied, corresponding authors can email openaccess@wspc.com for assistance.

The publisher will mention the availability of waivers and discounts on the web page of each journal and/or the article acceptance letter.
