APC Policy

Article Processing Charges Policy for International Journal of Emerging Technologies and Advanced Applications

The International Journal of Emerging Technologies and Advanced Applications (IJETAA) is an open access journal that adheres to the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International (CC BY-NC 4.0) license. To maintain the high quality of its published articles and to cover the costs associated with the publication process, IJETAA charges Article Processing Charges (APCs) for accepted manuscripts.

APC Structure:
The APC for an accepted manuscript is 1,000 USD or its equivalent in other currencies. The exact APC for each manuscript will be determined based on factors such as the length of the article, the complexity of the formatting and layout requirements, and any additional services requested by the author(s).

Waiver Policy:
IJETAA understands that some authors may have limited funding or financial constraints that make it difficult to pay the full APC. In such cases, authors may apply for a waiver or reduction of the APC. The following waiver options are available:

1. Full Waiver: In exceptional circumstances, IJETAA may grant a full waiver of the APC. To be eligible for a full waiver, authors must demonstrate that they have exhausted all other funding options and that paying the APC would cause significant financial hardship.

2. Partial Waiver: Authors who are unable to pay the full APC but can contribute a portion of the fee may apply for a partial waiver. The percentage of the waiver granted will be determined on a case-by-case basis, taking into account the author's financial situation and the availability of funds.

To apply for a waiver, authors must submit a formal request to the editorial office at the time of manuscript submission. The request should include a detailed explanation of the financial constraints and any supporting documentation. The decision to grant a waiver will be made by the editor-in-chief in consultation with the editorial board.

Payment Process:
If a manuscript is accepted for publication, the corresponding author will receive an invoice for the APC. Payment can be made via credit card, bank transfer, or other methods as specified in the invoice. The article will be published only after the APC has been received.

In cases where a waiver has been granted, the article will be published without delay, and the author(s) will not be required to pay the APC.

By implementing this APC policy, IJETAA aims to maintain the sustainability of its open access model while ensuring that financial constraints do not pose a barrier to the publication of high-quality research.
