Open Access Policy

Advances in Bioscience (ISSN 2583-0058) is committed to making all published articles freely available to the global scientific community, regardless of geographic location, institutional affiliation, or financial resources. We believe that free access to research findings accelerates scientific progress, fosters collaboration, and promotes the wider dissemination of knowledge. To achieve this goal, we adhere to a full open access publishing model. By adopting an open access model, we aim to maximize the visibility, use, and impact of our published articles, thereby increasing the value and credibility of scholarly communication in the biological sciences. This policy outlines our approach to open access publishing.

Open Access

All articles published in Advances in Bioscience are immediately and permanently available online without any subscription fees or access restrictions. The open access model ensures that all articles are freely available to a global audience, maximizing their impact and reach.

Article Processing Charges (APCs)

Advances in BioScience is committed to open access publishing. To ensure the sustainability of this model, we charge article processing fees to cover the costs associated with managing the peer-review process, copyediting, formatting, hosting, archiving, and disseminating each published article. APC is a one-time fee paid by the author(s) or their institution at the time of acceptance for publication. The structure of the APC is transparent and available on the journal website. We strive to keep APCs as affordable as possible while maintaining high publishing standards.

APC Waivers and Discounts

Advances in Bioscience is committed to supporting innovative research, even for authors who face financial constraints. We provide APC waivers and discounts to help overcome these challenges. For more information on eligibility and application details, please refer to our Author Guidelines.
