Article Processing Charge (APC)

The Journal of Business and Management (JBM) invites articles regarding all areas of business, management, and organizational decisions which would be of interest to academics and practitioners. As a forum of knowledge exchange, the JBM does not charge any fee to the authors for processing the submissions and reviews of their papers. Therefore, we cannot afford to provide reviewers any honorarium. However, the open access on the journal website, the editorial assistance, the typesetting and publication processes, and other services provided by the home office incur daily expenses. In order to maintain these services, each paper will be charged with the Article Processing Charge (APC) of US$350 (or US$250 if the author had reviewed a paper for JBM previously). A payment notice will be included in the acceptance letter and the receipt of APC will be issued to the author immediately after the payment is received online.

Please note that submission for reviews remain free of charge with the consent from the author to honor the APC payment once the paper is accepted for publication. We take this opportunity to give special thanks to all the volunteers worldwide who devoted their precious time to review the papers and feedback the comments. To show our appreciation, reviewers who spent significant effort to complete high-quality constructive reports will receive a US$100 APC discount credit that can be used one time only toward the APC of their future publications in JBM.


Declaration of Fair Practice

JBM Home Office will:

  • Never ask authors to pay a submission fee;
  • Never ask authors to pay the APC before the paper receives an "accepted for publication" decision;
  • Never publish works in exchange for gifts or money;
  • Never falsely claim to represent another publisher or entity;
  • Fully abide by the code stipulated in COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics).

Below is a breakdown of how the APC is used.
