АРС for the authors from developing countries

"Business Perspectives" understands that in some emerging and developing countries, there are no state or grant support programs for research, as well as there is no practice of compensating the authors for the cost of open access.

As a publishing company established in Ukraine, we offer Ukrainian scholars to take part in competitions for full or partial АРС compensation directly by the publishing company (the proportion of such articles can be 5-10% of the total number of articles published).

Another way to support scholars from developing countries is to sign a memorandum of cooperation with the university, which will provide its teachers with substantial preferences when paying for АРС. These terms are currently used by National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy, Kyiv National Economic University, and Simon Kuznets Kharkiv National University of Economics.

In addition, the article processing charge for the authors with affiliation in lower middle-income countries is significantly lower than the actual costs for processing articles that are fully compensated by authors with affiliation in high-income countries or upper middle-income countries only. For authors with affiliation in low-income countries, the amount of such compensation is even less.

We also practice individual discounts for АРС for authors who have financial problems and cannot attract sponsors. 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.
