Article Processing Charges

Article Processing Charges (APC) are required to meet operational expenses. Being an Open Access Journal, APALM does not receive payment for subscription, as its journals are freely accessible over the internet. The author, institution or funding agency pays a modest fee to help cover the actual cost of the essential final step, the publication. This charge covers the entire cost of the publication process, which includes peer-reviewing, editing, publishing, maintaining, DOI No., Indexing, online hosting and archiving, and allows immediate access to the full text versions of the research articles. APC is independent of the number of print pages and there is no surcharge for article submission, color figures or supplemental material, etc.

APC are payable only if the article gets accepted for publishing.

The author will be notified by email after the manuscript has been accepted during the review process . This email will contain further instructions on how to proceed with the payment of the APC.
