APCs are our sole revenue stream, allowing us to provide a high-quality publishing service that includes rigorous peer review, innovative technology, and global dissemination.

  1. Article Processing Charge Covered Journal Operation

We are committed to making the costs of publishing as clear as possible. The article processing charge covers the costs of turning a manuscript into a finished article and hosting, distributing and promoting an article. 

When a manuscript is submitted, it passes through different stages at JADHUR to ensure the quality checks, peer review, production and promotion of articles are carried out promptly and to a high standard:

  • The Editorial Screening team performs initial technical and ethical checks.
  • The Editorial team helps the journal's Academic Editors manage the review process.
  • The Production team converts the manuscript to a professionally typeset article.
  • The Proofing team coordinates the proofing process.
  • The Editorial Quality Assurance team performs a final check to ensure that the manuscript and its review process adhere to the journal's guidelines and policies.
  • The Marketing and Communication team ensures that the article receives the attention it deserves.
  • The Technology team builds and maintains the systems and develops new systems.
  • Journal indexing, archiving in all relevant academic and national databases etc

The work these teams do contributes to the requirement of an APC, which is why the actual amount payable may vary with time.
