ARTICLE PUBLISHING CHARGE
Why does The Research Publication charge publication fees from authors?
All original research papers published by The Research Publication (TRP) are made freely and permanently accessible online immediately upon publication. We guarantee that no university library or individual reader will ever have to pay any pay-per-view fees to access articles in the electronic version of any journal. There is hence no revenue at TRP from the sale of subscriptions to the electronic version or from pay-per-view fees. Yet, the online publication process does involve costs including those pertaining to setup and maintenance of the publication infrastructure, routine operation of the journal, processing of manuscripts through peer-reviews, editing, publishing with DOI, maintaining the scholarly record, and archiving. To cover these costs, TRP charges publication fees (also called Article Publishing Charges, henceforth APC) from authors and subscription charges only for its printed version.
The Research Publication offers the following licenses for all the journals:
Creative Commons Attribution-Non-commercial-NoDerivs (CC BY-NC-ND).
Allows users to: distribute and copy the article; and include in a collective work. These uses are permitted only for non-commercial purposes and provided the user: gives appropriate credit to the author(s) (with a link to the formal publication through the relevant DOI); provides a link to the license; and does not alter or modify the article.
Gold open access publication fee
To provide gold open access, this journal has a publication fee (Article Publishing Charge, APC) which needs to be met by the authors, or their institution or funders, for each article published open access. This ensures your article will be immediately and permanently free to access by everyone.
