Article Processing Charges
What are Article Processing Charges?

Science Publishing Group (SciencePG) employs a fully open access publishing model, ensuring that all articles in our journals are freely accessible to both the scientific community and the general public. Unlike traditional reader-pays models, where institutional libraries typically pay for content access, we do not generate income from selling subscriptions of the printed or online versions of published articles. Consequently, we rely on Article Processing Charges (APCs) collected from authors' institutes or research funding bodies to cover the costs associated with various publishing services:

  • Editorial Work

    This includes peer review, administrative support, content commissioning, and journal development.

  • Technical Infrastructure and Innovation

    This involves the development, maintenance, and operation of our online journal systems and websites.

  • Article Production

    This process includes the formatting and markup of articles and their inclusion in indexing services.

  • Marketing

    Ensuring that readers and authors are aware of the work published in our journals is crucial, hence marketing is a key component of our expenses.

  • Customer Service

    Our team is always ready to respond to authors and readers, maintaining a high standard of customer service.

The amount of the APC varies depending on the journal in which the article is published. Some journals may have higher APCs due to the volume of submissions they receive.

SciencePG is committed to making publication costs as clear as possible. Therefore, each journal's APC is transparently displayed on its website.

How Much Does SciencePG Charge for the Journal?

American Journal of BioScience (ISSN Online: 2330-0167, ISSN Print: 2330-0159) is an open access journal freely accessible on the Internet. With open access, SciencePG enables journals to disseminate knowledge more widely and at a lower cost than before. However, in order to cover the editorial services and production of articles, the journal charges an Article Processing Charge (APC).

The Article Processing Charge for the journal is 970 USD.

Journal Title ISSN Online Article Processing Charge
American Journal of BioScience 2330-0167 970 USD

Article Processing Charge discounts are given to authors from low-income countries or lower-middle-income countries (classified by the world bank, learn more, click: https://datahelpdesk.worldbank.org/knowledgebase/articles/906519-world-bank-country-and-lending-groups ).

Conditions for Additional Article Processing Charges (APCs):

The standard length for an article typically falls within the range of 4 to 25 pages. For articles that exceed the 25-page limit, an extra charge of 50 USD per additional page will be applied for each page beyond the initial 25 pages.

For more details, please contact with the editor directly once the manuscript is accepted.

Waivers on Article Processing Charges

Waivers may be granted at the Publisher's discretion and should be discussed with the editorial office when submitting the article. Editorial decision-making is decoupled from the authors' ability to pay the processing charges. However, authors should consider in advance whether they have sufficient funds to cover the full APC.

Who is Responsible for Paying the Article Processing Charges?

Upon editorial acceptance of an article, the corresponding author will be notified about the payment issue. The charge is typically covered by the author, funder, institution, or employer.

When and How do Authors Pay?

The corresponding or submitting author needs to arrange payment of the article processing charge unless a waiver has been granted. Following peer review, once a manuscript has received editorial acceptance in principle, the article processing charge becomes payable and formatting checks on the manuscript will commence. Once formatting checks are completed, and payment of the article processing charge has been received, the article will be published.

SciencePG currently supports the following payment methods:

Funding of Open Access Article

Organizations, including institutions, funders, societies, and various entities worldwide, have implemented Open Access (OA) mandates, which serve as directives or requirements for their associated authors. These mandates serve to promote and enforce the practice of freely sharing research findings and data with the public.

To provide transparency and information on open access mandates and policies, the Registry of Open Access Repositories Mandatory Archiving Policies (ROARMAP) offers a comprehensive and searchable database. For more detailed information, we invite you to visit the official website of the Registry of Open Access Repositories Mandatory Archiving Policies (ROARMAP).

Through the adoption of OA mandates, funding support, and participation in programs like ROARMAP, SciencePG aims to facilitate the widespread availability of research findings, enhance collaboration, and promote the exchange of knowledge for the benefit of the global scientific community.
