ARTICLE PROCESSING FEES (APF)
While the traditional publication model relies on restricting access to published research to recoup the costs of the publication process, the open access publishing model treats publication as the last phase of the research process. Instead of charging users a fee to read the content, an article-processing fee is required at the beginning of the process. This charge covers the entire cost of the publication process. This includes peer-reviewing, editing, publishing, maintaining, and archiving, and allows immediate access to the full text versions of the research articles.
