Open access publication proposes a relatively new model for scholarly journal publishing that provides immediate, worldwide, barrier-free access to the full-text of all published articles. Open access allows all interested readers to view, download, print, and redistribute any article without a subscription, enabling far greater distribution of an author's work than the traditional subscription-based publishing model. Many authors in a variety of fields have begun to realize the benefits that open access publishing can provide in terms of increasing the impact of their work.
An open access model, the publication costs of an article are paid from an author's research budget, or by their supporting institution, in the form of Article Processing Charges. These Article Processing Charges replace subscription charges and allow publishers to make the full-text of every published article freely available to all readers. In addition, authors who publish in our open access journals retain the copyright of their work, which is released under a 'Creative Commons Attribution License,' enabling the unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction of an article in any medium, provided that the original work is properly cited.
MNK Publication publishes all its journals in full open access format. The scientific community and the general public can unlimitedly and immediately access all content published in our journals for free as soon as it is published on the Internet. This means that MNK Publication does not have any income from selling subscriptions to print or online versions of its journals. Therefore, MNK Publication needs to defray its editorial and production costs by collecting article processing charges (APC) from authors' institutes or research funding bodies. MNK Publication is committed to keep its open access publication charges at a minimum level.
Authors of an article are responsible for arranging the payment of APC. Still, that typically does not mean that authors end up paying for the publication of the article. The cost of APC is very often assumed either by the organization funding the research published in the article, or by an Open Access Publishing Fund, or by the institution at which the author is employed.
Once an article has been accepted for publication, any Article Processing Charges on the article become due. The submitting author assumes responsibility for the Article Processing Charges, and MNK Publication will not issue refunds of any kind.
The submitting author needs to arrange payment of the article-processing charge. Following the peer review, once a manuscript has received editorial acceptance in principle, the article-processing charge becomes payable and formatting checks on the manuscript will commence. Once formatting checks are completed, and payment of the article-processing charge has been received, the article will be published.
