ARTICLE PROCESSING CHARGES

The APC (Article processing charge) is paid once, only if the manuscript is accepted for publication after being peer-reviewed (American International Journal of Social Science Research does not use submission or review charges).

In an open-access model, we promise that readers don't pay the subscription fee to access online published articles. Authors or a supporting institution pay for the publication of the article. With the support of Article Processing Charges (APCs), permanently unrestricted online access to published articles is allowed. Some fundamental costs like the peer-review process, typesetting, copy-editing, archiving, online production in various formats, abstracting and indexing services, promotion of the journal, and inclusion in CrossRef are covered. Hence, this journal is financed by Article Processing Charges (APCs).

Refund Policy

All products and services are sold “as is”. The author assumes responsibility for the payment, and no refunds will be issued.

Waiver Policy

We charge authors a fee for each article they publish. The charges vary from journal to journal; please find the exact amount required on the journal's webpage. This fee helps the open-access journals to cover their operational expenses. To avoid confusion and ensure fairness among customers, we do not waive or reduce fees/charges to anyone, including the editorial board member and the author of the special issue.
