Manuscript Handling and Processing Charge: The IJAMP is a self-supporting journal and does not receive funding from any institution/government. Hence, the management of the journals is solely financed by the handling and printing fees received from authors. The manuscript handling and publication fees are required to meet operations expenses such as e-Journal management, domain charge, web-hosting, printing cost, doi assignment for your articles, plagiarism checking (through iThenticate.com), XML Conversion for PMC, application development and support etc. However, International Scientist Publications (ISP) does not collect subscription charges from readers. They can enjoy barrier less online availability to the articles. Also there is NO submission charges for ISP. Authors are required to pay a fair manuscript handling and printing fee for the processing of their articles. When an article is accepted, processed, reviewed and authorized for publication, further payment instructions are provided to corresponding author through e-mail. Charges must be paid within 10 days as per instructions given in the e-mail. Acceptance will be final after the payment of publication charge. For more details please visit payment options.
Answer: The Article Processing Charges (APC) is paid when an Acceptance of the related paper reaches to the corresponding author.
Answer: Charge standards are in accordance with the national income and vary from countries to counties. You can pay a visit to the website: https:// www.isciencepub.com/
Answer: From submission to publication, it takes nearly one month: two weeks for article reviewing and acceptance, and another one or two weeks for article publication once the fee is paid.
Answer: Open access (OA) is the normal practice of providing unrestricted access via the internet to peer-reviewed scholarly journal articles. Open Access accelerates research and learning. By reducing the barriers that restrict access to knowledge, Open Access maximizes the opportunity for publications to be read and for authors to be recognized for their contribution in their chosen field and beyond.
