Article Processing Charge (APC) Policy

The journal provides open access publication for researchers, readers and institutions. Authors will not be charged for submission. However, the article processing charges are required, as it is normally the case for open access journals. The charges would be required after acceptance and when papers are ready for publication. The publication fees are divided into two types:

National Author (s): IQD 100000 per paper

Overseas Author (s): USD 100 per paper

The processing charges of an article is applicable for per paper one time and it is not refundable. Authors can withdraw their manuscript (s) at any time but before signing the copyright. Once the copyright is signed by the author of the manuscript (either digital or scanned), the charges then will not be refundable even if the author wanted to withdraw their manuscript. In the case of manuscript termination, the processing charges would not be refundable either.

The charges of article processing are used to maintain the journal publication location, and to manage all kinds of hardware and software resources before and after the article publication. This includes managing the journal website, similarity detection software, laptops, printers, etc. In addition, these charges cover assigning the article DOI, server maintenance fees, and cross-reference membership fees (annually).
