Article Processing Charges
Article Processing Charges (APC) constitutes the central mechanism for funding the open access based scholarly publishing. Tropical Journal of Phytochemistry and Pharmaceutical Sciences applies minimal APC which covers the overall editorial work flow, production, long-term hosting thereby allowing permanently unrestricted online access to the published works.
Why do we charge APCs?
There is no charge to submit paper, but publishing a paper in TJPPS requires article Processing Charges.Tropical Journal of Phytochemistry and Pharmaceutical Sciences is Open Access. TJPPS is a self-supporting journal and does not receive funding from any government institution/organization. Hence, the operation of the journal is solely financed by the publication fees of the authors. Open access, enabling far greater distribution of an author's work than the traditional subscription-based publishing model, allows all interested readers to view, download, print, and redistribute any article without a subscription, which can greatly increase the impact of their work. There is hence no income at TJPPS that comes from selling any forms of subscriptions to this electronic version of journal or from pay-per-view fees. In order to cover the costs induced by editorial procedures, routine operation of the journals, processing of manuscripts through peer-reviews, and the provision and maintenance of a publication infrastructure, the publication costs of an article are paid from an author's research budget, or by their supporting institution, in the form of Article Processing Charges. These Article Processing Charges replace subscription charges and allow publishers to make the full-text of every published article freely available to all interested readers.
