Article processing charges (APC)
APC are required to meet operations expenses. Being an Open Access Publisher, AABS does not receive payment for subscription as its journals are freely accessible over the internet. The author, institution or 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 access to the full text versions of the research articles. However, the APC is payable only if the article gets accepted for publishing.
AABS does not charge article submission fee, color printing charge, etc. from the authors.
