Article processing charges (APC) are required to meet operational expenses. Being Open Access Publisher, we do not receive payment for subscription, as our Journals are freely accessible over the internet. The author, institution or the funding agency pays a modest fee to help cover the actual cost of the essential final step, the publication.
This charge covers the entire cost of the publication process, which includes peer-reviewing, editing, publishing, maintaining, online hosting and archiving, and allows immediate on-line access to the full text versions of the research articles. However, the APC is payable only if the article gets accepted for publishing.
We do not charge article submission fees or color printing charges from the authors.
We strongly encourage ‘Online’ publication model to minimize the additional carbon footprints resulting from printing on papers. But we also understand that ‘Hard Copy’ of Journal is required by some authors, students and institutions. Therefore, we supply hard copy of Journals to authors and institutions as per their specific request.
However, the cost of the Print Copy of the Journal is not included in APC and to order the print copy of the Journal, payment has to be made separately.
APC vary from Journal to Journal and from time to time and the related information is available on the respective Journal website.
