Journal of Heart and Vascular Diseases

Article Processing Charges

Journal of Heart and Vascular Diseases is committed to the principles of open access, ensuring that research reaches the widest possible audience. In line with this commitment, the journal operates under the Gold Open Access model, making the final versions of all articles freely and permanently accessible to everyone as soon as they are published. Unlike traditional subscription-based models used by some journals, our approach involves the collection of publication fees from authors, which enable us to cover the costs associated with the publication process.

What does publication fee cover?

The Article Processing Charges encompass a range of services that are essential to the publication process and the dissemination of research findings. Here's an overview of what the publication fee covers:

Peer Review Process: Rigorous peer review is fundamental to maintaining the quality and integrity of published articles. The APCs contribute to covering the costs associated with expert peer review, ensuring that only high-quality research is published.

Editing and Formatting: Our dedicated team of editors and professionals work diligently to ensure that your article meets the highest standards of presentation, clarity, and formatting. The APCs cover the costs of copyediting, typesetting, and preparing your manuscript for publication.

Online Hosting and Maintenance: Your article will be hosted on our online platform, making it accessible to researchers, scholars, and the general public. The processing fee help maintain the digital infrastructure required for seamless access and navigation.

DOI Assignment: Each published article is assigned a Digital Object Identifier (DOI), a unique and permanent link that facilitates easy citation and referencing.

Licensing and Copyright: By paying the processing charges, authors retain copyright to their work and grant the journal a license to publish the article. This helps safeguard your intellectual property while allowing us to disseminate your findings to a global audience.

Open Access Publication: Most importantly, the APCs enable us to provide immediate and unrestricted open access to your published article. This empowers researchers, practitioners, and the public to benefit from your work without any barriers.

As a contributor to the Journal of Heart and Vascular Diseases journal, authors are required to pay Article Processing Charges (APCs) amounting to GBP 937 for each accepted manuscript. These APCs play a pivotal role in ensuring the sustainability of the Gold Open Access model, enabling us to provide unrestricted access to published research. It's important to note that this fee is exclusive of any credit card or wire transfer processing charges that might apply during the payment process.
