Article Processing Charges
In an open-access publication model, the costs of publishing an article are covered by the author's research budget or the supporting institution through Article Processing Charges (APCs). These charges replace traditional subscription fees and allow publishers to make the full-text of every published article freely available to all interested readers. It is important to note that no fees are charged for the submission of articles.
The Room of Civil Society Development (RCSD) employs an open-access publication model and requires authors to pay an APC of (IDR) 700.000,- or equal to (USD) 45, upon acceptance of their article for publication. This fee enables the journal to cover the costs associated with editing, production, and dissemination of the article, while ensuring that readers worldwide can access the published work free of charge
The APC fees charged by the RCSD are carefully assessed to ensure that they are reasonable and competitive with those charged by other scholarly journals in the field. Furthermore, the journal offers optional charges for fastrack review that required athors to pay (IDR) 500,000.- or equal to (USD) 33.-
Waivers and Discounts
For authors publishing in RCSD journals, it offers waivers and discounts to international authors (non-Indonesian afiliated authors)
To ensure that editorial decisions are never influenced by ability to pay, it is RCSD policy that editors of open access journals are not involved in correspondence with authors regarding payment of Article Publication Charges (APCs). The automatic waiver system will be managed by administrative staff not involved in decisions regarding article acceptance. We ask authors not to discuss any issues concerning payment with editors.
