While we promote a community that empowers researchers with tools and services that eliminate the barriers to publishing, it should be noted that African – British Journals is solely independent and autonomous thereby not depending on funding from any external institutions aside revenues from Article Processing Charge (APC) paid by authors. And being an Open Access Publisher, we do not charge for access to our journals, they are accessible free of charge to everyone on the internet.
All fees paid by authors as Article Processing Charge (APC) are expended on various activities and operations to keep our platform running including technology cost, salaries & other business costs, peer review coordination & management, production & promotion of articles amongst other publishing activities.
While we don’t charge for submissions, authors are required to pay Article Processing Charge which they only pay if their articles have been accepted for publication. See Article Processing Charge for each category of authors below.
