Journal of Humanities and Social Sciences Studies (JHSSS) is a self supporting organization 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, JHSSS does not receive payment for subscription as the journal is freely accessible over the internet. JHSSS 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.
Authors are required to pay a fair manuscript handling fee for the processing of their articles. However, there are no submission charges. Authors are required to make payment only after their manuscripts have been accepted for publication.
We do not want fees to prevent the publication of worthy work!
At Journal of Humanities and Social Sciences Studies, we understand that some authors, students or institutions may have limited funding for their research activities. Thus, we have instituted a generous waiver system that may ease the payment of the manuscript handling fee when their researchers choose to publish their manuscripts in our journal. Our primary goal as stated in our mission is to accelerate the dissemination of knowledge through the publication of high quality research articles. We are continually pursuing this goal, without putting undue financial burden on researchers or their institutions.
Journal of Humanities and Social Sciences Studies offers APC waivers to papers whose corresponding authors are based in countries classified by the World Bank as low-income economies as of July 2020.
Please request your waiver or discount at the point of submission.
