Article Processing Charges (APCs)

The Journal is open access under the CC BY 4.0. Authors should pay the Article Processing Charge (APC) after their work is accepted. APC covers the costs related to the whole publication process such as peer review process, copy editing, host it on the servers and long-term digital preservation.

The APC of the Journal is $1500, and it may be paid by the authors’ institutions or fundings.


There is a waiver policy for those from low-income countries and high-quality work, and the Publisher will bear the APCs under the circumstances. A waiver policy is helpful to remove the cost barriers in academic exchanges. The Editorial Office reserves the right to approve or reject a waiver application. Waiver application please contact
