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

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 They are applicable if the paper has to be withdrawn after 5 days of submission.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.
