The APC are calculated considering various situations, including ability to pay for publication for those who are unaided or underfunded. This is a simple payment model based on the ability for an average cost of outing or purchase. And additional authors beyond the base charge for two-author will mean the individual cost for each author further reduces overall, making the publication not dependent heavily on only funding agencies, or hinder students from publishing either.
