Article Processing Charge
There is no fee for manuscript submission to IJEM. However, IJEM charges an article processing fee to the author(s). Because, our journal normally works by subscription, in order for the articles to have open access, the author(s) is/are required to pay an article processing charge. IJEM is an open-access journal, meaning all articles are available online immediately on publication to anyone, anywhere, at any time. To support open access, the journal has an Article Processing Charge (APC). The author(s) will be asked to pay the APC [USD 600] -the transaction/tax fee should be added to this APC- to cover publications costs such as assigning doi number, preparing the galley proof of the paper, professional editing et al. It is because the journal editors do not want rigorous work to be prevented from publication. This charge applies to accepted articles. There is no waiving policy in case of a lack of funds to pay this APC. However, the publisher may use grant funds for high-quality articles that editors approve. The executive editor is authorized to be the recipient of payments on behalf of the journal publisher.
