Article processing Charges (APC)

Open Access Model in the recent years has disregarded the practice of charging the readers to view/read the published article by imposing Article Processing Charges (APC) on the authors upon publication of their article. This model has benefited the scientific community with the benefit of viewing and reading articles without any monetary barriers, by contributing towards further investigation or research to promote advancement of science.

Openventio Publishers follow the author pay system so as to cover our production expenses which involves editorial review, double-blinded peer review process, styling, editing, formatting, maintaining, and archiving services. APC is imposed at the beginning of the publication process and its flat rate varies according to the type of article for all our open journals.

Editorial assessment and peer review process

Scholarly peer review in scientific journals is a quality control mechanism, where an author’s scholarly work, research, or ideas are subjected to a critical evaluation undertaken by experts specializing in the related area, prior to publication in a journal or as a book. The peer review process ensures that the articles published, meet the accepted standards of the discipline. Openventio follows an initial editorial review process (pre-quality editorial assessment-PQA), where the experts first assess the manuscript for their overall quality and suitability for publication in the journal; based on this system of evaluation, manuscripts are then accepted or rejected, followed by a double-blinded peer review process, which means that the confidentiality of both the reviewer and author identities are maintained, such that neither the author nor the reviewer details are disclosed throughout the review process. To facilitate this, authors are advised to ensure that the author details and blinded manuscript without the author details are submitted as two separate files.
