Article Processing Charges

Need of article-processing charges (APCs)?
Once a manuscript is accepted for publication, the author(s) will be required to pay a nominal publication charge before the accepted paper is published.  UJPR defray those costs from article-processing charges (APCs), because it does not have subscription charges for its research content, believing instead that immediate, world-wide, barrier-free, to the full text of research articles is in the best interests of the scientific community. Like most other  publishers, UJPR maintains its high quality of service through an ‘author-pay’ model. As such, manuscripts that are accepted for publication following peer review incur a publishing fee.

  • Immediate world-wide barrier-free open access to the full text
  • Developing and maintaining electronic tools for peer review and publication
  • Preparation in various formats for online publication
  • Securing full text inclusion in a number of permanent archives.

To which articles will this charge apply?
Article processing charges are associated with only accepted articles for processing, secured data storage system and making the final version of the manuscript freely available via open access.
Why a flat charge rather than one based on page numbers?
The size of an article is a poor indicator of the actual amount of work involved in obtaining peer reviews and in preparing the article for publication. A more useful discriminator might be the state an article is in when submitted, and its complexity, but the lack of objective tools to measure these has lead us to conclude that a flat fee is the fairest approach at this stage.

Responsibility  for making the payment?
Whoever submits the manuscript is responsible for making or arranging the payment (for instance, via his or her institution). The submitting author must confirm, at the time of submission, that they will organize payment should the article be accepted for publication.

Mode of payment
Following peer review, once a manuscript has received editorial acceptance in principle, the article processing charge becomes payable, and formatting checks on the manuscript will commence. Once formatting checks are completed, and payment of the article processing charge has been received, the article will be published.

Prompt payment is advised, payment can be made via online payment or bank transfer.
