Article Processing Charges

Article Publishing Charge
Article processing fees for the journal vary based on a country's economic development status. Author/authors from developed nations will be required to pay a fee of 1,200 USD to help cover the operational costs of the journal. However, to increase accessibility and promote widespread participation, a discounted rate of 800 USD has been established for authors hailing from developing countries. This pricing structure aims to foster an inclusive environment that welcomes valuable insights and perspectives from academics, professionals, and thought leaders across the global economic spectrum.

Benefits of Gold Open Access: 

Increased citation and usage

As articles are freely and permanently available online immediately upon publication they have a broader distribution and increased visibility over subscription content. Research has shown that articles published open access receive higher citations, downloads and views. Download figures are also sustained over a longer period in articles published OA than those with restricted access.

Easy compliance with institutional and funder mandates

Content published under a Creative Commons licence can be archived anywhere and made immediately available on publication, allowing authors to easily comply with funder requirements. Retention of copyright by authors.

Faster impact

As work is available to all as soon as it is published research that builds on the paper can be carried out and published quicker. This is especially important in fast-moving or time-sensitive fields and topics (e.g. current epidemics).
