Article Processing Charges
The Journal of Humanities and Social Sciences Studies (JHSSS) is a self-supporting journal and does not receive funding from any institution/government. Hence, the management of the journal is solely financed by the handling fees received from authors. The manuscript handling fees are required to meet operations expenses such as manuscript processing, editing, publishing, online availability, internet services, webhosting, application development and support, etc. Being an open access journal, the journal does not receive payment for subscription as the journal is freely accessible over the internet. The journal provides immediate, worldwide free access to all published manuscripts. Readers can view, download, print, and redistribute any article without any financial barrier, enabling greater distribution of an article. There are no submission charges, page charges, or color charges. However, the author(s) will be asked to pay an article processing charge of $150 upon the acceptance of the research paper.
Article Processing Charges are required after a manuscript has been accepted for publication. The journal implements a reasonable refund policy based on the publishing status:
1. Full refund: the online version is unpublished.
2. No refund: the online version is published.
The author may withdraw an article before the review process is completed. The withdrawal of an article is not allowed after it is processed for publication. There is no charge for the withdrawal of an article.
A payment confirmation will be sent through email to the corresponding author after the Article Processing Charges have been paid. You can hope to receive the confirmation within 2-3 working days after the payment has been processed.
