Article Processing Charges (APC)

Article processing charge (APC) is paid only after the manuscript had been reviewed and accepted for publication (only for open-access article which is distributed under the terms of any of the Creative Commons licenses). APC covers the costs of the publishing process, including peer-review administration, copy editing, hosting the files, etc. APC varies for each journal and detailed information can be found on concrete journal's page.

The Publishing Company “Business Perspectives” realizes that authors have different financial capabilities concerning APC. There are countries where governments, academic institutions, universities, etc. do not provide authors with funding in order to publish their research results. That is why the Publishing Company applies the flexible system for APC.

In order to enhance the publishing opportunities for authors from low-income countries, the Publishing Company provides a system of partial compensation of Article Processing Charges. The Publisher also offers personal discounts for some authors from these countries. In such cases the author should apply to the Publisher with a fully substantiated request concerning both discounts for APC or for a free publication. Such an application is considered in each case individually.
