PROCESSING FEES

Dama International Journal of Researchers is a self-supporting organization and does not receive funding from any institution/government. Hence, the management of the Journals is solely financed by the processing fees received from authors. The manuscript processing fees are required to meet operations expenses such as employees’ salaries, internet services, webhosting, application development and support, electricity etc. Being an Open Access Publisher, Academic Journals does not receive payment for subscription as the journals are freely accessible over the internet.

Authors are required to pay a fair manuscript processing fee for the processing of their articles.  However, there are no submission charges. Authors are required to make payment only after their manuscripts have been accepted for publication. See Manuscript Processing Fees in the table below.
