Article Processing Charges

Article Publishing Charges (APC): USD 35

APC is free for article submission of authors from a minimum of three different countries' affiliations. One of the authors in your manuscript has more than 5 H-Index from the Scopus database and is willing to review a paper.

Fast Track Review: (Optional)

When do I have to pay, and how do I pay?

If the manuscript has been accepted for copyediting, [email protected] will contact the corresponding author to transfer the required amount.

After payment confirmation, the corresponding author will receive the Letter of Acceptance (LoA) for publication and the free-access link to the article. The link can be shared with co-authors and colleagues and posted on the author's personal or institutional web pages.

Can I reduce my publication fee?

Yes, you can reduce the amount you have to pay if you apply for a waiver or discount available only if the author(s) are based in developing countries (list is provided below). You must declare reasonable reasons for a waiver or discount in the comments to the Editor box during your submission. Otherwise, your application will be considered a regular submission if it is not asked at this stage. 

Applying for a waiver or discount will not affect the article submission's review results.

Waivers and Discounts

Authors publishing in EDUVELOP journals offers waivers and discounts to corresponding authors in developing countries.

To ensure that editorial decisions are never influenced by the ability to pay, it is EDUVELOP policy that editors of open-access journals are not involved in correspondence with authors regarding payment of Article Publication Charges (APCs). The automatic waiver system will be managed by administrative staff not involved in decisions regarding article acceptance. We ask authors not to discuss any issues concerning payment with editors.

In addition to the Research4Life countries listed below, some journals may offer additional waiver initiatives for APCs. These other APC waivers will be managed by the editors and may be discussed with them.

Fast Track Journal Consideration

Our goal is to provide the research community with quick and immediate access to recently completed research works in various research areas that are rapidly developing with significant potential impact.  Fast-track journals are crucial for research articles that are exceptionally important and require urgent dissemination or where there is a funding policy reason for critical publication. Fast track is the best way to disseminate an outstanding article that reports essential and timely developments.

Fast track publication service is provided to shorten the time to decision and publication. The entire peer review can be done within four weeks, and the article shall be published within two days post-acceptance as Article in Press. If you wish to use fast track publication service, please submit your manuscript and write to the editor-in-chief with manuscript ID at [email protected].

The charge has to be paid with the submission of the article. Please mention in the Editor's Box (during Submission) that you would like to use this route to receive the invoice.

Article Withdrawal

Withdrawal Guidelines

ARTICLE WITHDRAWAL (At Any Point Before the Author Receive the Letter of Acceptance)

Manuscripts may only be withdrawn if they have not been formally published. Retired means that the article content (PDF file) is removed and replaced with a PDF stating that the article has been withdrawn according to the Eduvelop Journal's Policy on Article Withdrawal. Authors may contact the editors to withdraw their manuscript if:

  1. The same manuscript was accidentally submitted more than once in EDUVELOP Journal.
  2. The manuscript contained too many errors.

To withdraw an article, the authors must write a clear and concise letter with an in-depth explanation as to why the manuscript needs to be removed. All authors must sign the letter. The subject email should be "Withdrawal of [manuscript ID]: [article title]."

EDUVELOP journal maintains the right to withdraw an article due to the presence of plagiarism, fraudulent use of data, or violations of other ethical codes.

ARTICLE RETRACTION (After Formal Publication)

Articles that have been formally published on the website may be retracted. In the place of the article, a note titled “Retraction of [manuscript ID]: [article title],” signed by the authors, will be published on the website as a part of the subsequent issue. The original link will still contain the article but will include a watermark and be preceded by a note. The HTML version will be removed.

Your published article can be retracted if it infringes professional, ethical codes, such as multiple submissions, bogus claims of authorship, plagiarism, fraudulent use of data, or the like. Occasionally a retraction will be used to correct errors in submission or publication. The retraction of an article by its authors or the editor under the advice of members of the scholarly community has long been an occasional feature of the learned world. 

ARTICLE REMOVAL (After Formal Publication)

In extreme cases, where an article is defamatory, infringes legal rights, is subject to a court order, and poses health risks, it will be removed from the online database and replaced with a screen indicating why the article was removed. The metadata (Title and Authors) in research databases may remain, but the text will not be available afterward.

ARTICLE REPLACEMENT (After Formal Publication)

If an article contains information that will pose a health risk, the author may retract the original article and replace it with the new, corrected version. The article retraction process will be followed, and the retraction note will contain the unique link to the re-published article and a history of the document.
