Article Processing Charges (APCs)

Advances in BioScience (ISSN 2583-0058) is committed to publishing high-quality, peer-reviewed research in all areas of the biological sciences. As an Open Access journal, we make all published articles freely available to readers worldwide without any financial barriers. To cover the costs associated with this model, we levy Article Processing Charges (APCs) on accepted manuscripts. Article Processing Charges (APCs) are fees charged to authors to cover the costs associated with the publication of their articles. These charges cover various aspects of the publication workflow and contribute to the quality and accessibility of published content.
