Manuscript Handling Fee & Waiver Policy

Category: journal Created: Saturday, 26 June 2021 Published: Saturday, 26 June 2021 Written by imejournal

Journals like The IM&E Journal, are 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 expenses such as  salaries, internet services, webhosting, application development and support, electricity, rentals etc. Being an Open Access Publisher, The IM&E Journal does not receive payment for subscription as the journals are freely accessible over the internet.

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. See Manuscript Handling Fees for each journal below.

We may also grants waivers to some corresponding authors. See Waiver Policy if you are eligible for a waiver.

Waiver Policy

We at The IM&E Journal, understand that some institutions may have limited funding for their research activities.  Thus, we have a generous waiver system of  the manuscript handling fee when their researchers choose to publish their manuscripts in our journal.  Our Mission is to encourage the dissemination of knowledge through the publication of high quality research papers. We thus do not want to put undue financial burden on researchers or their institutions. Hence, we have instituted the following waiver policy.

Authors from Low Income category may be granted up to 80% waiver.

Authors from Lower Middle-Income category may be granted up to 50% waiver. 

To request a waiver, kindly send an application to our Editor-in-Chief. Waiver application should contain the manuscript details and state the reason for requesting a waiver.
