Article Processing Charge
To cover the cost of publishing our journal, we gently ask authors with available resources such as research grants to pay this article processing charge (APC). This APC also covers standard English language editing and image/graph editing services. However, very extensive language editing and statistical services may incur additional charges.
Authors with limited funding for research activities can write to QIMS Editorial Office to request for a half-price or full waiver. Articles contributed by QIMS editorial members (with QIMS editorial member being the first author or principle author) of this journal will not be charged with APC. Authors' ability to pay publication fee will not be a consideration in the decision of whether to accept a manuscript.
