Publishing fees for Gold- OA

Article processing charges (APCs)

FOREX Publication supports a sustainable model for open access publication. APCs support this model by contributing to the costs of publishing Gold open access articles .

Similar to others, there is no paper, no mailing, no subscriptions, and no restriction against using and sharing articles published in our journals. But we do have to pay for maintaining published articles in online repositories under gold open access publishing. In addition, articles need graphics, formatting, and the editorial services we provide, in order to meet rigorous academic standards. Like any other open access publishing company, FOREX Press Journals (FPJ) has paid employees.

According to DOAJ's guidelines, the open access of open-access journals cannot include the Embargo period and complying with their guidelines, we have removed green-open-access from our open access and as part of this process we have also stopped accepting paper in which we used to keep the article in Embargo Period before publishing it for free.

Our APC is all inclusive, and:

  • Makes your article freely available online, permanently;
  • Includes your choice of Creative Commons licence (CC BY) at no extra cost;
  • It is not a submission charge, so you only pay if your article is accepted for publication.
  • The invoicing process is handled by administration staff who are not involved with the peer review or acceptance/rejection of your paper;
  • Enables us to provide excellent service for authors, learn more about the benefits of publishing with us.
  • Article processing charges under gold open access publishing

    APCs vary with journal and the APC's Journal shown above is the base price but it may vary on article to article depending on the type, quality, no. of pages, images, tables, funding, etc.; visit our journal pages for individual journal fees.


    With a view to encourage research scholars, in India to write their research and reviews, the publication has kept APC very low for Indian resident authors, charged at 5000 INR. After this, no other discount will be given on it.
