As an Open Access journal where articles are freely available online for readers and are freely downloadable with no subscription paywalls, we do require some APCs (Article Processing Charges) to cover our article processing and publication expenses.

APCs cover the costs of:

  • peer review management
  • copy-editing
  • Typesetting
  • XML and PDF conversion
  • PDF and other formats' production
  • DOI number costs for each article,  [mEDRA service for DOI deposit]
  • Indexing (Web of Science) services

All accepted articles undergo APCs. Please note that APCs do not apply to rejected articles or submitted articles.

Authors are requested to pay their APC once their article is officially accepted by the editorial team - ensuring a fair and transparent peer-review process. The APC should be paid after the acceptance of the article and before its publication.

Upon article acceptance, all authors will receive instructions on APC payment procedure via e-mail. APCs do not apply to rejected articles or submitted articles. 

The new policy does not provide waivers or discounts. The discount/waiver requests will not be answered.

* Article Processing and review charge (APC): 500 Euro
* Fast processing + review+ evaluation for the next available issue: 1000 euro


The APC and Fast processing+review+evaluation can be paid by paypal/credit card
