The APC (Article processing charge) is paid once only if the manuscript is accepted for publication after being peer-reviewed (This Journal does not use submission or review charges). In an open-access model, we promise that readers don't pay the subscription fee to access published articles online. Authors or a supporting institution pay for the publication of the article. With the support of Article Processing Charges (APCs), permanently unrestricted online access to published articles is allowed. Some fundamental costs like the peer-review process, typesetting, copy-editing, archiving, online production in various formats, abstracting and indexing services, promotion of the journal, and inclusion in CrossRef are covered. Hence, this journal is financed by Article Processing Charges (APCs). This journal charges the following author fees.
