Author Fees

This journal charges the following author fees.

Article Submission: 0.00 (USD)
Authors are NOT required to pay an Article Submission Fee as part of the submission process to contribute to review costs.

Article Publication: 150.00 (USD)
To support the cost of wide open access dissemination of research results, to manage the various costs associated with handling and editing of the submitted manuscripts, and the Journal management and publication in general, the authors or the author's institution is requested to pay a publication fee for each article accepted. The 150 USD fee covers the standard eight (8) pages manuscript. For every additional page an extra fee of 25 USD per page will be charged. The payment also included delivery fees of the hardcopy to corresponding author. Instructions for money transfer via bank transfer will be provided by the editor with the notification of acceptance for the accepted paper. A waiver or partial waiver of author fees may be decided by the editor in case of lack of funding, excessive length of submitted manuscript or other sound reasons provided by the author during the submission. The author should clearly declare that he asks for a waiver in the comments to the Editor box during their submission. The waiver will have no effect on the review result of the paper. A waiver is most likely to be denied if it is not asked in this stage.

An author or group of authors who cannot afford the publication fee may be eligible for a partial waiver of publication fees. We do not want fees to prevent the publication of worthy work. The partial waiver is intended primarily for authors from low-income countries (http://data.worldbank.org/income-level/LIC) who are without funding. It is unlikely that a partial waiver will be granted to authors from established academic or research centres in the developed world. If you would like to apply for a fee partial waiver, you will need to email Editor-in-Chief (EiC) before submission with details about your research paper, such as author names and positions, institutions, funding and type of research.
