Why do we Charge a Publication Fee?
In order to achieve the objective of Greener Journals, we require a handling fee for each accepted manuscript. This is the available means of funding for our research and publication activities. We aim to render top quality and excellence in our publication and circulation of articles and move in line with important advancements and new technologies in the research community, therefore this as a means of funding is important and much needed.
What is the publication Fee?
The Handling fee for processing and publishing a manuscript in our journals ranges from 100 - 250 USD depending on the journal of publication. Find the fee per journal below.
A separate amount (25 USD) is required to order a hard copy, however, delivery may take up to 5 weeks depending on the delivery location. Authors may choose to pay an additional fee to expedite delivery through faster postal companies.
Cannot afford the publication Fee?
Though the handling fee we charge is much needed and deserved, we cannot deny you the publication of your important research. Therefore, if you truly cannot afford to pay up to the required fee; when submitting your paper, simply indicate a reasonable amount you can truly afford and we will assist you.
