How is Waiver further interpreted?

  • First author’s primary affiliation listed in the manuscript, as it is/will be published online is considered the country of author in deciding the invoice value.

  • If there are more first authors from different criteria, the highest possible category of them is considered to be the criterion for deciding invoice value.
  • In the author consent letter submitted along with your manuscript should contain the publication charges you accept to pay once the manuscript is accepted and the same will be your invoice amount. No other changes are entertained in later stages.

What is the disclosure and visibility policy of APC details?

Editors and reviewers have no access to these details, and hence inability to pay will not influence the decision to publish a paper.

Is there any withdrawal charge?

Withdrawal of manuscripts after the first round decision is made incurs minimum charge of $99. Kindly make note of this before you submit your manuscript. However withdrawal before receiving first decision does not incur any charges. 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.

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, man power, technical team, communication support 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
