Sami Publishing Company policy of Article-processing charges (APC)

The Sami Publishing Company (SPC) has started since 2017 by its self-funded independent publisher. All costs are paid by the SPC publisher.

All articles published in SPC’s Journals are immediately open access under the CC-BY license and are freely accessible for downloading and sharing. Our Journals do not impose a submission fee; however, for open access publication, authors are required to pay an article processing charge (APC).

As a self-funded independent publisher, SPC’s Journals incur costs related to the setup and maintenance of the publication infrastructure, routine operation of the journal, processing of manuscripts through peer reviews, editing, publishing, maintaining the scholarly record, and archiving. To cover these expenses, the journal relies on an Article Processing Charge (APC). The APC is payable when a manuscript has undergone positive peer review and is prepared for acceptance. Apart from the APC, there are no submission charges, page charges, or color charges.

The APC payments replace subscription charges and allow publishers to make the full-text of every published article freely available to all interested readers. In addition, authors who publish in our open access journals retain the copyright of their work, which is released under a “Creative Commons Attribution License (CC BY- 4.0)” enabling the unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction of an article in any medium, provided that the original work is properly cited.
