Why is Article Processing Charges (APC) collected?
Publishing process is definitely not free of cost, but in open access the research articles are available for free of charge. This implies that we need to incur some amount of fee to keep our process going. It’s the reason we collect open access charges which helps us to cover the processing expenses for various activities like review process handling, indexing, cross reference, manpower, technical team, communication support, basic office expenditure, etc.,. In spite of all our expenses we tend to keep our fee balanced both for our users and the publishing house. Also please note that this charge will be levied only for the accepted manuscripts, there are no submission charges
Is there any withdrawal charge?
Withdrawal charges are $150 USD. They are applicable if the paper has to be withdrawn after 5 days of submission. Kindly make note of this before you submit your manuscript. You may not submit elsewhere without official withdrawal of manuscript and it will be considered ethical misconduct if you do so and will be dealt accordingly.
Authors may cover their publishing charges using the funding provided by funding agencies, generally funds are allocated for this purpose. For funder compliance please check with your respective funding agencies and if you have any query for which you could not find information on our website please do contact us.
If you do not have any funding for your work, your university may be willing to pay for you to publish in an open access journal. You need to contact the university office to verify if any such provision is available and make use of this reimbursement.
Our editors and reviewers can avail a waiver of 10% on their corresponding APC, and if any other waivers are available at that time, they cannot be used in combination. Only the highest possible single waiver is applicable.
We provide special waivers for authors with financial difficulties by supporting them with partial waivers or complete waivers depending on the level of difficulty and upon publishers discretion. These waivers are limited per slot and are provided on first come first serve basis. Please apply only if you genuinely require this waiver, since it may help some other author who is really in need to utilize it.
If you are a student and lack funds, we allow a special charge of $300 USD flat for any type of publication. Hence students belonging to this category can utilize the special charge.
**Any waiver requests should be approved prior to submission. No waiver requests will be approved after submission.
If your institution is a member of this journal, then you can avail a benefit of 15% waiver on your corresponding APC. There is no charge for an institutional membership.
