Author Fees

Upon submission, authors are required to pay an Article Processing Charge (non-refundable) as indicated below to contribute to editorial and production costs. Authors have to make the payment only after the article is accepted. One of the great benefits of this model of publication is the speed that your accepted submission can be peer-reviewed and published.

India: INR 5000.00
Foreign: USD 150

To make the payment, please follow the steps outlined here. If you do not have funds to pay such fees, you will have an opportunity to waive the Article Processing Charge. We do not want fees to prevent the publication of worthy work, and will consider applications for a fees waiver on a case-by-case basis. Please contact the editor for more information at
