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.

For authors who do not have sufficient resources to pay APC, they can write a letter to QIMS editorial office to ask for a reduction of half price of APC, or ask for waiver of APC, and such applications are usually granted. Articles contributed/co-authored by editorial members 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.
