Article Processing Charge (ISSN 2976-937X) is a unique peer-reviewed journal that values the contributions of editors and reviewers by compensating them for their work, while also promoting open access to research for wider accessibility. To sustain this publishing model, we request authors to pay an article processing charge of $1950 upon acceptance of their manuscript as a research article, review, or research report. For commentaries, the article processing charge is $450. As an author, you retain the copyright of your work, while granting us the non-exclusive right to publish it under the CC-by open access license.

In contrast to many other journals, by paying the article processing charge, you not only contribute to open science but also help support your academic community by financially compensating your colleagues, including yourself, for their valuable editing and reviewing work. Rather than supporting the profits of large corporations, you contribute to promoting equitable, inclusive, and fair publishing norms, serving as an inspiration for other publishers to adopt similar practices.

We understand that some authors may face financial constraints. Therefore, we offer discounts and waivers for exceptionally strong contributions. If you believe that your manuscript meets the eligibility criteria, we encourage you to contact us before you submit your work. As our financial resources expand, we aim to provide waivers to qualified scholars on a more regular basis.
