Publication Fee & Waiver Policy

To help support researchers, particularly orphans and widows who are unable to meet some or all of the costs associated with publication. JIRMS operates a transparent waiver policy. Requests will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. Waiver requests are assessed and granted by the Publisher, not the Editor or editorial board, to ensure editorial independence.

The corresponding author should submit a waiver request to the email address at the time of manuscript submission.


Article Processing & Publication Fee

Authors pay a one-time Article Processing Charge (APC) to cover the costs of peer review administration and management, copyediting, typesetting, long-term archiving, professional production of articles in PDF, and journal management, an article processing charge (APC) of Rs.=7,000/- (nonrefundable) is applied to any paper submitted after August 20, 2023 and accepted after desk review for systematic review. The APC is payable for an article that is agreed as part of the manuscript submission process.

The peer review generally takes 6~8 weeks from submission to the notification of accept/reject decision. Once an article is accepted, the corresponding author will be notified that the Publication fee of Rs.= 28,000/- is due, and need to arrange the payment promptly. The accepted article will not be published before receipt of the payment.

JIRMS will reject any manuscripts submitted by a third party rather than by the authors themselves or where any systematic manipulation of the peer review or publication process has been suspected. The journal reserves the right to enforce this policy at any point of the peer review or publication process.
