My paper has been published, but I cannot find it on the Web.

All published papers are normally indexed within 5 days from the date of publication and thereafter should normally be visible on the Web within 4-5 days.

ePublication Certificate. Why and When?

As a recognition of the author's contribution in IJCSMS proceedings, IJCSMS will issue an ePublication Certificate. The certificates are normally sent (via email) within 14 days from the date of publication. All certificates will be sent to the corresponding authors only. Co-authors need to contact the corresponding author.

How is IJCSMS funded?

We promise that access to the research published in IJCSMS journal will remain free. However, as there is no charge to access the research, there is an article-processing charge for all published articles. As a scientific publisher, IJCSMS obviously has to be profitable to survive as a service for the scientific community. We believe that if we add value to raw data, we are entitled to charge for access to it. If a journal commissions topical or thematic reviews, and so helps individuals orientate themselves amidst the complexity of available research, it may have a subscription charge. However, once again, we promise that access to all research will remain free.

Why does IJCSMS has article-processing charges?

Publishing with open access is not without costs. IJCSMS defrays those costs from article-processing charges, because there is no charge to access its research content, believing instead that immediate, world-wide, barrier-free, open access to the full text of research articles is in the best interests of the scientific community.

Where is my article publication money going?

Publication fees are used to pay for several expenses:

  • Manuscript handling from submission to publication
  • Electronic composition and production
  • Server and website update and maintenance
  • Electronic archiving
  • ePublication Certificate
  • Administrative expenses and other overheads
