Article Processing Charges
All articles published in our journals and proceedings are open access and freely available online, immediately upon publication. We guarantee that no university library or individual reader will ever have to buy a subscription or pay any pay-per-view fees to access articles in the electronic version of our journals and proceedings. This is made possible by Article Process Charges (APCs) that covers the range of publishing services we provide. This includes provision of online tools for editors and authors, article production and hosting, liaison with abstracting and indexing services, and customer services.
APCs are due when a manuscript has been accepted for publication. Following peer review, once a manuscript has received editorial acceptance in principle, the APCs becomes payable and formatting checks on the manuscript will commence. Once formatting checks are completed, and payment of the APCs has been received, the article will be published.
The journal applies various APCs according to the economic conditions of authors’ countries. Below is the table of Article Processing Charges:
Authors from different countries will be charged differently according to GNI per capita. For list of countries by GNI per capita, please refer to:
The authors must pay an additional fee for mailing and printing costs if the journal's hardcopy is needed. It is a flat fee that does not vary based on word count or use of color figures.
Payment can be made by credit card, bank transfer. Instruction for payment is sent to corresponding author as soon as manuscript is accepted. Please ensure that you're aware of the applicable fee before you submit your paper.
For your added security we suggest you use PayPal to process the payments, the reasons as follows:
PayPal is a global leader in online payment, available in 190 countries and regions, and over 20 currencies. PayPal is the most-loved online payment solution for authors.
When you use your credit card through PayPal, CSP is unable to access to your credit card number, which will minimize the risk of unauthorized use.
PayPal can be used by Credit Card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express), Debit Card, or E-check (i.e. using your regular Bank Account).
