Article Processing Charges (APC)

The IJBS publishes all its manuscripts in full open access, meaning unlimited use and reuse of articles, in addition to giving credit to the authors. 

Iranian authors pay two Article Processing Charges (APC). The first charge covers the costs of peer review administration and management, designing, professional production of articles in PDF and other formats, and dissemination of published papers in various venues, in addition to other publishing functions. The second charge covers the language editing process. This charge is considered to be optional. Authors can either submit an English Native Certificate along with its track change file or can pay the language editing charge in order for the journal to carry out the language editing process.

There are no charges for rejected articles, no submission charges, and no charges based on the length of an article, figures or supplementary data.
