Article Processing Charge

The APC, is payable when a manuscript is editorially accepted and before publication. We advise prompt payment as we are unable to publish accepted articles until payment has been received.

All articles published in Asian Business Review are open access and freely available online, immediately upon publication. This is made possible by an article-processing charge (APC)/ donation that covers the range of publishing services we provide. This includes the provision of online tools for editors and authors, article production and hosting, and liaison with abstracting and indexing services. The corresponding author of the manuscript is responsible for making or arranging the payment upon editorial acceptance of the manuscript.
