Publishing model

Our Publication model

FOREX publication (FP) had transitioned from the traditional and subscription-based publishing model of journals to the Open Access (OA) model from the very beginning as part of the continuous reforms in scientific publishing that aim to expand the audience, reach, and impact of published research. Since the beginning of publication, we have advanced together and solely published journals and papers under the open access model.

When an article is published online, it is made publicly accessible rather than being placed behind a paywall under this open access paradigm. When a manuscript is approved, an Article Processing Charge (APC) is paid by the institutions or funding organisations of the authors in order for the work to be published.


Our Business model

We are non-profitable publisher, work for research fidernity.

All articles published in our journals are open access and freely available online, immediately upon publication. This is made possible by an article-processing charge (APC) that covers the range of publishing services we provide. This includes provision of online tools for editors and authors, article production and hosting, liaison with abstracting and indexing services, and customer services. The APC, payable when your manuscript is editorially accepted and before publication, is charged to either you, or your funder, institution or employer.


Model approach

We believe scientific publishing should be an industry that helps rather than hinders scholarly activity. High-quality research demands high-quality communication — widely, rapidly and easily accessible to all FP works to facilitate it.

APC cover the majority of the operating costs of the Press, but the evolving needs of the academic community require continual investment in new technologies and new methodologies of delivery. The continuing scholarly publishing mission also requires that the Press maintain its commitment to fields of scholarship that often may not have a market able to support the costs of publishing. Fundraising, at all levels, allows the Press to continue this mission and publish these important works at a price affordable to scholars and students.
