International Journal of Psychosocial Rehabilitation’s Article processing charges (APC) is paid by authors and their institutions to fund publication. APCs cover the costs of managing the peer review process, editing, professional copyediting, and promoting published research. At the International Journal of Psychosocial Rehabilitation, we believe that open access provides researchers with good value for money.  Our income per article is significantly lower than that of established subscription publishers. We provide a good deal for funding bodies because the results can be widely disseminated and there is no barrier to reading, providing transparency to those who are paying for it. We also provide transparency to taxpayers, who indirectly fund a significant amount of research; through open access, they can see the results of their contribution.

International Journal of Psychosocial Rehabilitation publishes all of its journals in full open access, which allows for unlimited use and reuse of articles while also crediting the authors. All of our articles are licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) license.

The cost covers of peer review administration and management, professional production of articles in PDF and other formats, and dissemination of published papers in various venues. Please keep in mind that while the option to process an advance payment is still available, it does not guarantee manuscript acceptance. There are no fees for rejected articles, no submission fees, and no surcharges based on article length, figures, or supplementary data.

You will receive an invoice shortly after submitting your paper. Payment can be made by credit card, bank transfer, or PayPal in Euros (EUR), US Dollars (USD), Indian National Rupees (INR), Japanese Yen (JYN), Swiss Francs (CHF), or British Pounds Sterling (GBP).

The most immediate and convenient method is to pay by credit card: we receive payment confirmation immediately and can begin editing your paper as soon as we receive it. PayPal is also instant, but there is a 6% transfer fee. If you pay by bank transfer, we will not begin editing your paper until we have received payment confirmation, which can take several days. If there will be a long delay in payment (for example, due to institutional bureaucracy), please contact us with proof that the payment is being processed so that we can return the edited manuscript sooner.

DISCOUNTSWaivers are granted at the discretion of the Publisher and should be discussed with the editorial office when submitting the article. The editorial decision is independent of the author's ability to pay the Processing Charges; however, authors should consider whether they have sufficient funds to cover the full Article Processing Charges ahead of time. We also provide discount vouchers to certain reviewers. The APC for any paper published in our journal is reduced for authors affiliated with participating universities.
