How to find SCI journals with free page charges?

Due to the reactions of many authors and friends, the layout fee of sci journals has become more and more expensive, and they have begun to look for sci journals that can free layout fees, but they are not familiar with free layout fee journals. How can I find sci journals with free page charges? Let me talk to you in detail below.

Most journals charge a page fee for publishing papers, and only a small number of journals do not charge a page fee.

Non-OA journals are called "traditional journals". Generally, no page fee is charged for publishing papers in this type of journals. Readers need to purchase journals or pay subscription fees to obtain literature information.

Scientists submit papers in non-OA journals, generally do not need to pay review fees, academic journals (review, organize peer review) - publishing, printing, channels - readers (subscription). In the traditional publishing model, publishers use readers' subscription fees to pay for the costs of "reviewing, organizing peer review" and "publishing, printing, and channels" through sales, and publishers can make profits in the process.

OA journals put information on the Internet for everyone to view and share. Authors will charge for publishing articles, but readers can obtain information for free. "Open access" journals charge scientists review fees, and at the same time accept national and private funding to maintain "review, organize peer review" and maintain online platforms.

To sum up, if you want to submit your paper in an SCI journal that does not charge a page fee, you must submit your paper in a non-OA journal. Most of the papers received by SCI journals are in English. For authors who are not good in English, they need to find a polishing company to help revise the grammar and logical expression of the paper.
