Edorium Journals follows an open access publishing model. All articles are freely accessible, without any restriction, by any reader, in any part of the world. To support the open access initiative, instead of charging fees from the users to read the published content and restrict access of scientific literature, Article Processing Charge (APC) are levied after the manuscript has been accepted for publication.
All articles published in Edorium Journals are open access. Open access publishing implies that all readers, anywhere in the world, are allowed unrestricted access to full text of articles, immediately on publication in Edorium Journals. No payment is collected from the readers for accessing, downloading and reading the articles. This increases the citations of an article in other articles and increases its importance in academic literature. If a published paper can only be accessed by paying a subscription fee, many authors while writing their manuscripts, look elsewhere for free articles and include them in their citations. Due to this reason some very good articles suffer and lag behind in citations as readers cannot access them without paying for subscriptions. The Article Processing Charges pay for the editorial and production costs of the journals, for hosting the website, editing of articles, publishing articles online, preparing multiple formats of the articles, video editing and submitting the articles in electronic citation, indexing and abstracting databases. Authors submitting from institutions which are members of Institutional Membership program receive a waiver in APC. Authors enrolled in our Favored Author Program are given waivers in Article Processing Charges.
Although the Article Processing Charges for our journal are very low as compared to other journals, waiver requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Full or part waiver of charges may be granted in some cases. Edorium Journals waiver policy and fees for low and lower-middle income countries are give here. DO NOT submit your manuscript before you have received a decision from the Editorial Office. You will be informed of the decision on the waiver application within two working days. Please understand that waivers are granted on a case-by-case basis. Many factors are considered for granting a waiver and there is no guarantee that a waiver or waiver will be granted. Authors’ ability to pay article processing charges is not a consideration in the decision of whether to publish.

Article Processing Charges apply to all articles that have been accepted for publication in after undergoing editorial and peer review.
The corresponding author of a manuscript is responsible for arranging funds to pay for the processing charges. The actual payment can be made by the corresponding author or any other person or institution on behalf of the corresponding author.

Article Processing Charges can be made by using secure payment gateways. The details of how to make the payment will be sent to you after your article has been accepted for publication. A receipt of the amount paid will be sent to you within 48 hours of receipt of the payment.
If your institute is enrolled in our Institutional Membership program, you will receive full or part waiver in Article Processing Charges based on the option selected by the member institute.
If the Article Processing Charges payable for an article submitted for publication are revised while your manuscript is under review you still pay the lower Article Processing Charges, which were applicable at the time you submitted your manuscript. If an institution enrolled in our Institutional Membership program ceases to be a Member while the manuscript is being processed authors will still receive all membership benefits. However, if an institution becomes a member after the author has submitted an article, that article will not be covered by the membership benefits.
