Revenue Sources (Publication Model ) IJELLH is an Open Access journal and we do not receive any grant by any organization, hence we ask our authors to pay Article Processing Charge (APC). All revenues are generated from author fees.

This fee is charged to meet the publication expense requirements. APC covers the expense of the administrative cost, the peer review process, publication processes, online publication, hosting the website, online security (virus attack), etc. Authors paying fees do not mean that the process would be curtailed short or they can get their publication fast.  IJELLH does not compromise with its quality standards.  Please go through the Publication Fee link for the Article Processing Fee information.
