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 the articles, immediately after publication. No payment is collected from the users (readers, libraries, institutions, organizations) for accessing, downloading and reading the articles. Due to free availability of your article published under open access by Edorium Journals, more authors can refer to it while writing their articles and this increases the citations of your article and its importance in scientific literature.
To support the open access initiative, instead of charging fees from the users to read the published content, Article Publication Charges (APC) are levied on the authors after the manuscript has undergone editorial and per review and has been accepted for publication.
The Article Publication Charges pay for the entire cost of the publication process from the time of submission of a manuscript to its final online publication. This includes peer reviewing, editing, publishing, maintaining and archiving of the paper, preparing HTML and PDF versions of the articles and submitting the articles in electronic citation database like CrossRef. The charges also cover for maintaining the websites, hosting environment and software for processing a manuscript.
