APC & Waiver Policy
Article Processing & Publishing Charges
JIRS is a fully open access journal. All its content is free for reading online, downloading, and sharing. Moreover, we also publish a print version of every issue of the journal. To cover the expenditure of publishing to some extent, JIRS has standard processing & publishing Charges. At the same time, we also give full or partial waivers to encourage researchers for low-income or they don't have any funds in their research projects for publishing the manuscript.
JIRS requires article processing & publishing charges (APPCs) and does not charge any fee for submission. However, after successful completion of the review process and the acceptance of the manuscript, the author/s have to deposit APPCs in the official bank account through an online transfer with the detail mentioned in Publication Charges.
To help support researchers, JIRS provides full and partial waivers of article processing & publishing charges for manuscripts by International authors from low-income countries listed at https://datahelpdesk.worldbank.org/knowledgebase/articles/906519-world-bank-country-and-lending-groups
Authors need to request the waiver; they will be applied at submission. All the waiver requests will be reviewed on a case-to-case basis and the Editor’s decision in this regard will be final.
