Waivers - Edorium Journals
Publication Charges Waiver Policy
All articles published in Edorium Journals are open access. Open Access publishing implies that all readers, anywhere in the world, are allowed unrestricted access to full text of articles, immediately on publication in Edorium Journals. No payment is collected from the readers for accessing and using the articles.
Edorium Journals aims to encourage and enable authors from all countries to share their scientific knowledge with others and learn from the scientific knowledge of others. To remove financial constraints as a barrier to sharing and learning especially for authors from low and lower-middle income economies, Edorium Journals has formulated a waiver policy. Authors from the two groups of countries listed below receive waivers in Article Publication Charges for all journals published by Edorium Journals group. The two groups of countries were identified based on the classification of countries by World Bank (Gross national income and Gross national income per capita figures), United Nations (United Nations least developed country list and Human Development Index) and Health Inter Network Access to Research Initiative (HINARI).*
Group 1 - The authors will not be charged for publishing.
Group 2 - The authors will be charged a flat publishing fee of $250.
If the publication charges for any journal are less than $250, the authors will be charged the lower journal charges and not $250.
