Article Processing Charges (APC) Structure

In an effort to ensure the sustainability and quality of our journal, we have established a transparent and fair pricing structure for Article Processing Charges (APCs) that reflects the diverse global academic community we serve. Our aim is to provide equitable access to the publication process while maintaining the highest standards of peer review, editorial assistance, and dissemination of scholarly research.

Differentiated Pricing for Authors

Recognizing the varying economic conditions and research funding availability across the globe, we have implemented a tiered pricing approach for authors based on their geographical location. This approach enables us to balance the need to cover operational costs and maintain accessibility for researchers worldwide.

  • Authors from Indonesia: The APC for authors affiliated with institutions in Indonesia is set at $1500 USD. This pricing reflects our commitment to support researchers within the local academic landscape and encourage participation from this region.

  • Authors from Other Countries: For authors from other countries, the APC is established at $1200 USD. This tier acknowledges the diverse international research contributions we receive and seeks to accommodate researchers from around the world.

Withdrawal Charges

It is essential to note that the publication process involves significant resources and efforts from our editorial and peer-review teams. To ensure the commitment of authors towards the process, we have introduced withdrawal charges.

  • Withdrawal Charges: A standard withdrawal fee of $500 USD will be applicable to articles that are withdrawn after a certain stage in the publication process. This fee is intended to offset the administrative and editorial efforts that have already been invested in the article up to that point.

Authors’ Responsibilities and Considerations

We encourage authors to carefully consider their submissions and financial commitment before initiating the publication process. We understand that unforeseen circumstances may arise, leading to withdrawals. However, we kindly request authors to be mindful of the impact on the journal’s resources and the academic community’s time and effort.

In summary, our APC structure is designed to be inclusive, accommodating, and sustainable. By offering differentiated pricing based on geographical location, we aim to foster global research collaboration while ensuring the continued excellence of our journal. We appreciate the support and understanding of our authors in maintaining the integrity and value of the scholarly publishing ecosystem.
