Article Processing Charges

As the Journal is open-access, publication of manuscripts requires payment of an Article Processing Charge (APC) that is to be bearable by the corresponding author after the manuscript is accepted for publication through peer-review process. Apart from this Article Processing Charge there are no other fees to be paid by the author(s).

The corresponding author will be notified regarding acceptance of manuscript after the peer-review process and he needs to make the payment.  It is advisable to make prompt payment as accepted articles will be published after receiving the payment.

Payment can be done by RTGS/ NEFT and Credit card - payment can also be made online using a secure payment form as soon as the manuscript has been accepted. We will we send a receipt by email once payment has been processed.

Apricus Journals will refund an article processing charge (APC) when a fallacy on our part has resulted in a non-fulfilment to publish a manuscript under the open access terms selected by the authors.  A refund will only be offered if the mistakes have not been corrected within 15 days of publication.

Article Processing Charges will not be refunded when manscripts are retracted due to author’s error or misconduct.
