Article Processing Charges

ESSD is an open access journal that follows the new model for scholarly journal publishing that provides worldwide, complete and free access to the full-text of its published articles. Therefore, ESSD allows all readers to download, print, share, post and reorganize interests to use any article for free of charge. This will help in increasing the impact of authors’ work. Article processing Charges are needed to cover the cost of the publication process.


This charge does not include submission charges or additional page charges.
