Waiver Policy

We understand that some institutions may have limited funding for their research activities.  Thus, we have instituted a generous waiver system that may ease the payment of the manuscript handling fee when their researchers choose to publish their manuscripts in UJPR.  Our primary goal as stated in our mission is to accelerate the dissemination of knowledge through the publication of high quality research articles. We are continually pursuing this goal, without putting undue financial burden on researchers or their institutions. Hence, we have instituted the following waiver policy. We provide a waiver of Article Processing Charges to authors based on country classification by World Bank and Processing charges decided as per countries classified World Bank Country Classification. We can also waive 100% in some special condition depend on if there is no funding and author not able to charge any fees. In order to apply for a waiver, please request one before submitting your manuscript by sending an email to editor@ujpr.org

Authors from Low Income Countries may be granted up to 75% waiver.
Authors from Lower Middle-Income Countries may be granted up to 40% waiver.
