Publication Charge

IJCSR understands that rapid publication and non-restrictive access to information are two of the topmost concerns of authors. In order to address these concerns, IJCSR needs to maintain a robust and dynamic website and staff, and good membership status to the academic community. There are NO SUBMISSION or ARTICLE processing charges. However, there is a nominal publication charge. Authors will only pay the publication fee after acceptance of the paper. Payment (or non-payment) of publication fee does NOT affect the editorial decision.

As testament to make IJCSR an international journal, we are lowering the publication charge for authors coming from lower income countries (Source: Researchers from the said countries will only have to pay a publication fee of $50. This allows our colleagues from these countries to have their quality studies gain international recognition and audience. Publication charges can be waived at the discretion of the publisher.
