ARTICLE PROCESSING CHARGE (APC)
All journals of Sankalp Publishing initiative to provide quality publishing platform for the authors. Manuscripts are published after successful peer review by qualified researchers. All articles published in our journals are open access and freely available online, immediately upon publication. We cover the costs partially through Article Processing Charge. Our expenses are split among editorial costs, electronic composition and production, journal information system, manuscript management systems, electronic archiving, overhead expenses, administrative costs, etc. Moreover, we are providing research paper publishing at the minimum available cost. Publishing a paper in any Journal of Sankalp Publishing requires very low processing charges to cover editing, formatting, online publication, DOI, and server maintenance that will be paid by the submitting author upon acceptance of the paper for publication. The Article Processing Charge (APC), payable when your manuscript is editorially accepted and before publication, is charged to either you, your institution, your funder, or your employer. The corresponding author of the manuscript is responsible for making or arranging the payment upon editorial acceptance of the manuscript.
APC refund policy
Sankalp Publishing will refund an Article Processing Charge (APC) if an error on our part has resulted in a failure to publish an article under the open access terms selected by the authors. A refund will only be offered if errors have not been corrected within thirty days of publication. APCs will not be refunded when articles are retracted as a result of author error or misconduct.
