Article Processing Charges (APC) is charged to the corresponding or primary authors of the article that is being published in our journals. The amount may vary between USD 599-1800 depending on the article type, Funding Support or resources, and the economic status of the author’s country.
There is no charge for the authors if they wish to withdraw their manuscript from initial stages of processing. However, the author needs to pay full amount as withdrawal charge if the article is under review stage or accepted for publication. This amount will be utilized to compensate the costs incurred during the process and publication.
Once the article is accepted by the journal, the APC is due on the author. Authors will have sufficient time from the date of submission to acceptance for deciding whether to continue publication or withdraw the submission. So, fee once paid will not be refunded at any situation as the journal publishes articles under Open Access platform, fee paid by the authors will be spent towards the costs associated with the process and publication.
