Open-access articles are journal articles published by Al-Misbah under business models in which the publication of the articles is funded by payments made by the authors, their institution, or funding bodies. These payments are referred to as "Article Processing Charges" (APCs).
As an open-access journal, which typically involves the upfront payment of an article processing charge (APC), we will also make their article immediately and freely available upon publication on Al-Misbah, in perpetuity, with the license attached to it. Al-Misbah APC prices are set on a per journal basis, with prices clearly displayed on journal homepages.
APC Al-Misbah and the source of funding from Universitas Ahmad Dahalan (UAD) as a publisher, do not affect any editor's decision on the article.
Adjustments in Al-Misbah’s APC prices are under regular review and are subject to change. We set APC prices based on the following criteria:
• Journal quality;
• The journal’s editorial and technical processes;
• Competitive considerations;
• Market conditions;
• Other revenue streams associated with the journal.
