Authors of some specific Kowsar journals need to pay the "Acceptance Fee". We called them "Article Processing Charge plus (APC+)" journals. Before submitting a manuscript in a journal, we kindly and strongly recommend you to consider APC+ or APC- (free) journals.
(These journals are marked as YES in the column of APC)
(These journals are marked as "Free of Charge" in the column of APC)
Kowsar publishes all its journals in full open access format. The scientific community and the general public can unlimitedly and immediately access all content published in our journals for free as soon as it is published on the Internet. This means that Kowsar does not have any income from selling subscriptions to print or online versions of its journals or from charging "pay-per-view" fees. Therefore, Kowsar needs to defray its editorial and production costs by collecting article processing charges (APC) from authors' institutes or research funding bodies. Kowsar is committed to keep its open access publication charges at a minimum level. Already now, Kowsar's charges—if calculated per page—are much lower than the revenues per published page that traditional, subscription-based academic publishers can generate. Paying the article processing charge in an Open Access journal is a replacement with the normal subscription charges used by most journals and allows journals to make the full text of every published article freely available to all interested readers.
The article processing charges (APC) for different journals is given in the table below. The basic article processing charges (APC) cover editorial service and production of an article. Non-native English speaking colleagues are encouraged to use a professional English editing service before submission of a manuscript.
