Article Processing Charges

All articles published in our journals are open access and freely available online, immediately upon publication. This is made possible by an article-processing charge (APC) that covers the range of publishing services we provide. The APC, payable when your manuscript is editorially accepted and before publication, is charged to either you, or your funder, institution or employer.

The article processing charge (APC) for this journal is INR 1000 Incl. taxes for India and $120 plus taxes for the rest of the world.

The article processing charge (APC) is payable when a manuscript is accepted after peer review, before it is published. The APC is subject to taxes where applicable. The journal offers waivers to authors from Lower middle-Income Countries (10% waiver on the actual APC) and authors from Lower-Income Countries (35% waiver on the actual APC) depending on the quality of work and other special considerations. The Journal reserves the right to approve or reject any waiver application. The waiver decision will be communicated to the corresponding author within three days after the request is received.

If your paper is accepted for publication after peer review, you will first be asked to complete the contributor’s publishing agreement / Copyright form.  the corresponding author will be asked to pay the article processing charge (APC) via a payment link. Once the APC has been processed, your article will be prepared for publication and can appear online within an average of 7-15 days. Please note that no production work will occur on your paper until the APC has been received.
