Article Processing Charges: ARK Publishers is an online open access, peer reviewed journals publishing organization; we do not have funding/support from any Private Organizations/Government to run. To run our organization in an organized way, we charge manuscript processing fee from the authors to publish their manuscripts. We charge fee to maintain published manuscripts in online repositories. All our articles are published in most updated formats (HTML, PDF, etc.,)
ARK Publishers publishes all its journals in full open access under a Creative Commons (CC BY) license. This allows the scientific community and the general public to gain unlimited, free and immediate access to scholarly articles. To cover the cost of publication, authors pay an article processing charge (APC) for manuscripts accepted after peer-review.
Waivers may be granted at the Publisher’s discretion and should be discussed with the editorial office when submitting the article. The editorial decision making is decoupled from the authors’ ability to pay the Article Processing Charges; however, authors should consider in advance whether they have sufficient funds to cover the full APC.
The published articles have no subscriptions, and no restriction against using and sharing articles published in our journals. So, for maintaining published articles in online repositories publication fees is included.
Article Processing Charges (APC) is levied as it covers parameters included with 1) Editorial work: Peer review, administrative support, commissioning content, journal development. 2)Technical infrastructure and innovation: Development, maintenance and operation of online journal system and websites. 3) Production of articles: Formatting and mark-up of articles and inclusion in indexing services 4) Marketing of journal and content: Making sure readers and authors know about the work published in the title. 5)Customer service: Responding to authors and readers.
|Article Type||Publication Fee (USD)|
|Short Communication/Commentary/Letter to Editor/Opinion/Perspective/Book review||850|
Withdrawal Policy: An author is free to withdraw article at no charge-as long as it is withdrawn within a week of its original submission. However, once peer review is completed the paper is accepted for publication, and it has been worked into a journal issue, where we have incurred some costs from our end that need to be reimbursed. Hence author(s) are requested to pay about 25% of the publishing fee towards it for withdrawl.
