Article Processing Charges

PEFI Publishers follows the Open Access Policy of publication, which allows free online availability and access of articles, immediately upon publication. Hence we do not receive any income from selling subscriptions to print or view online versions of its journals or from charging "pay-per-view" fees. The Open Access policy is made possible by an article-processing charge (APC) or Publication fee which will be incurred by the author. The APC covers charges for the services being provided; these services include systems for the Authors, Editors and reviewers, production, hosting, indexing services and service support. Without proper financing for such necessary expenses, the journal would be unable to provide the rigorous and professional service upon which we pride ourselves. The article charges are payable on the acceptance of the article prior to publication.

The publication charge for each article is Rs. 1500.00 (For Indian Author)
For PEFI Members: Rs. 1000.00
Others: 25 USD
