Article Publication Charges (APC)

This journal has article publication charges policy as follows:

Article Submission: 0.00 (IDR)
Authors are not required to pay an Article Submission Fee as part of the submission process to contribute to review costs.

Article Publication: 300,000.00 (IDR)
If your submitted paper is accepted for publication, you will be asked to pay an Article Publication Fee to cover publication costs. The invoice will be issued together with the letter of acceptance (LoA).

Nevertheless, there is an opportunity to waive each fee. We do not want fees to prevent the publication of worthy works. Should the author expect the fee waiver, he or she should inform the managing editor as early as possible.

Withdrawal of Manuscripts

The author is not allowed to withdraw submitted manuscripts, because the withdrawal is a waste of valuable resources that editors and reviewers spent a great deal of time processing submitted manuscript, and works invested by the publisher. Moreover, if there is an unethical reason to withdraw due to a double submission to another journal.

If the author still requests withdrawal of his/her manuscript when the manuscript is still in the peer-reviewing process, the author will be punished to pay 500.000 IDR per manuscript as a withdrawal penalty. 

If the manuscript is already accepted for publication and/or published, the requesting author will be punished by paying 1.000.000 IDR per manuscript.

The withdrawal process will only be conducted after the penalty has been fully paid. If the author cannot or does not agree to pay such penalty, the author and his/her affiliation will be blacklisted for publication in this journal.
