Article Processing Charge
Why does Asian Business Consortium (ABC) charge publication fees?
ABC Journals covers the costs of journal production, web hosting, CMS, database, online repository and archiving, peer review, editing and online publication (open access) / digital book publishing through a modest and affordable publication fee paid by authors.
ABC Journals is a self supporting organization and does not receive funding from any institution/government. Hence, the operation of the journal is solely financed by the publication fees received from authors. The publication fees are required to meet operations expenses such as employees, salaries, internet services, electricity etc. Being an Open Access Journal, ABC Journals does not receive payment for subscription as the journals are freely accessible over the internet. It costs money to produce a peer-reviewed, edited, and formatted article that is ready for online publication and camera ready version for hard copy print publication, and to host it on a server that is freely accessible without barriers around the clock. .
ABC journals incur a single Article Processing Charge (APC) per accepted article. APCs are not collected until a manuscript is accepted for publication. The APC goes towards the peer review, online production in various formats, promotion, online hosting and archiving, as well as making the article available worldwide free to readers. The APC for a ABC Open Access journal can be found also in the journal's Guidelines for Authors page. You may pay the publication fee by credit card, PayPal, or wire transfer. If you have any questions regarding payment, please do not hesitate to contact the journal editor.
