Article Processing Charge

[UPDATE!] All articles accepted are subject to "Article Processing Charges" to provide free access to readers and to cover the costs of peer review management, journal production, online hosting, and long-term archiving.

All readers and authors of the Islamic Guidance and Counseling Journal (IGCJ) can enjoy the benefits of free open access, meaning unlimited use and reuse of articles. We believe that free open access promotes accessibility and use throughout the world, serving the professional and scientific community, as well as the wider community. Because there are no fees charged for access, IGCJ offsets the cost of publication (including the costs of peer review management, journal production, online hosting, and long-term archiving) by charging article processing charges (APC) to authors, institutions, or funders for each published article.

During the submission and peer-review process, there are no charges. The APC is charged to the author when their manuscript is editorially accepted or before the publication with the amount of USD 499 (excl. 15% VAT). Further information to make payments will be notified along with the status of their manuscript is editorially accepted. We request that you evaluate your potential to obtain funding for the Article Processing Charge before submission, not after acceptance.
