Authors pay a one-time Article Processing Charge (APC) to support the publication process of their accepted articles. This fee covers the costs of peer review, editing, production (including PDF and other formats), and dissemination. Importantly, there are no charges for rejected submissions, no submission fees, and no surcharges based on article length, figures, or supplementary data. Additionally, certain item types like editorials, corrections, and addendums are published free of charge.

Total publication fee (APC) per article is 200 USD.

For transparency, we provide a detailed breakdown of how APCs are used. This breakdown aligns with recommendations from the Fair Open Access Alliance and ensures full compliance with Plan S requirements, both of which promote sustainable and transparent open access publishing practices.

1. Publishing Operations & Projects

INASED develops and maintains its own electronic submission and peer-review website. INASED also runs several platforms to offer different types of services for member associations and doctoral and early career scholars.

2. Journal publication

  • Triaging: Filtering of manuscripts upon submission by editorial staff.
  • Organization of peer-review: INASED provides a high degree of assistance to Editors so that they can  focus more on editorial decisions. 
  • Production: Copy-editing, typesetting, PDF conversion, and language editing. The APC includes minor English editing by native English speakers. The APC does not cover extensive English editing.
  • Proofreading: Corresponding with authors to approve the final text and requesting any missing information.
  • Other editorial assistance: Handling any questions and requests for support before submission, during the editorial and peer-review process, or post-publication.
  • Indexing & archiving: INASED has a dedicated team that works to continuously expand post-publication coverage of all journals within the main academic databases, scope-specific databases and country-specific journal ranking lists.
  • Plagiarism Detection: In accordance with its publishing policies, IJPE obliges each study that has undergone the "Blind Review Process" to be detected for plagiarism to protect the integrity of the study. Therefore, the accepted manuscripts are detected for plagiarism by a company chosen by the editorial board.
