Article Processing Charges
Please access more information on APCs in FAQs.
All journals published by the ResearchersLinks follow Open Access model through Creative Commons license. This allows the scientific community and the general public to gain unlimited, free and immediate access to scholarly articles. More information can be obtained from Open Access and Public Access Policies. In order to meet running and maintenance expenses associated with the publication process, authors financially contribute through article processing charges (APCs). APCs are only paid once a manuscript is accepted after completion of the peer-review process. Some of our journals (Sarhad Journal of Agriculture and Annals of King Edward Medical University) charge nominal submission fee while others (Pakistan Journal of Zoology and Sarhad Journal of Agriculture) request surcharges based on the length of an article or colour of the figures (for printed copies only). These fee structures are defined by sponsoring societies and institutions and are being practiced since the launch of the journals. However, no journal charges for rejected articles. Initial issues of our newly launched journals are free of charge.
Invoices are emailed within 5-10 days of article acceptance either with the galley proof or before. All invoices are made directly by the responsible journal and we do not authorize any third party to collect the APC and such payments are deemed unacceptable.
Below mentioned table provides a simplified overview of the APCs and detailed information can be obtained by clicking on the journal name. Please visit this page or "Processing Charges" tab in the journal menu to obtain updated fee structures.
