Article Processing Charges

 

INFORMATION FOR AUTHORS

There is no publication Fee.

Academic Research in Science, Engineering, Art & Management  (ARSEAM) foundation  aims to provide a highly readable and valuable accumulation to the literature which will serve as an indispensable reference tool for years to come and to become an effective medium for inspiration to the innovators and researchers to bring out their contributions in the form of research papers, articles, case studies, review articles and innovations in the fields of Management, engineering, science, Art, and technology.

We launched  Journals with the commitment  to publish significant and fruitful research contributing excellent reading material to interested readers. This objective mainly attained with the Open Access Scheme which allows readers to view, read, download, print, and share any article without any subscription charges.

In this direction, we have designed a systematic process that involves peer-reviewing, editing, publishing, indexing, archiving, and reference linking. It allows  an immediate access to the full text version of the published paper .  This stepwise process, on the other hand, also created space for article processing charges as time and cost are incurred at each stage.

Deployment and Maintenance Cost

As we indulged in indexing services which boost the travel speed of an article from the author(s) to their potential readers, we laid our hands on various technologies and journal indexes, including, Google Scholar, International Institute of Organized Research (I2OR), International Society for Research Activity (ISRA) and a few others. Some of these involve membership fee, deployment of certain technology, upkeep cost, etc.

ARSEAM’S Journals are  self supporting organization and does not receive funding from any institution/government.  Paper Processing Charges majorly comprise of the deployment and maintenance of the Indexing technology that we have embedded.  It also includes the employees salaries, internet services, electricity, editorial costs, electronic composition and production, journal information system, manuscript management system, electronic archiving, overhead expenses, and administrative costs and making published paper available all the time etc.                

This replaces subscription charges and allows publishers to make the full-text of every published article freely available to all interested readers.

Another major segment of the article processing and publication cycle is the Reference Linking. This part is better managed through our Zenodo membership, which allows us to generate (Digital Object Identifier) DOIs for each article published at ARSEAM’s  Journals.  

Underneath, we give our terms and details of Processing Charges:

  • There is no Fee for Article submission and peer review of it.
  • Publishing an article in any of the ARSEAM’s  Journals calls for a fairly reasonable Article Processing Charge that would be paid by the  author after acceptance of the article for publication.
  • Processing Charges are levied on authors as the papers undergo a thorough round of blind peer review, editing and formatting before being accepted for publication.

  • The fee charged from the submitting author is used to pay for editors, reviewers and maintaining the technology for  indexing of articles.

It is to be noted that ARSEAM’S  journals do not charge for online publications. You can submit your manuscript to get it published at ARSEAM’S  journals  absolutely free of cost. However, hard copy or print publication is charged as 1500 per head. For print publication, authors can submit the processing charges for publication of their articles, upon acceptance, through any of the following payment options
