Re: Hindawi's Monthly Submissions Grow to Over 2,000

Does Hindawi charge a fee for submission or only for publication? 
Does it vary from journal to journal? if there is no fee for 
submissions, doesn't the publication fee have to increase in 
order to cover the higher processing costs for larger numbers of 
submissions? Is that fair to authors whose articles are accepted, 
i.e., paying a higher fee because more articles are turned down?
