Manuscript Processing Charges

International Journal of Law Management & Humanities publishes all its manuscripts in full open access under a Creative Commons (CC BY) license. This allows the scientific community and the general public to gain unlimited, free and immediate access to scholarly articles, and to reuse the content freely provided that proper attribution is given to the original authors.

To cover the cost for providing our high-quality publishing service and free access to readers, authors pay a one-time manuscript processing charge (MPC) for manuscripts accepted after peer-review. There are no charges for rejected articles, no submission charges, and no surcharges based on the length of an article, figures or supplementary data. Editorial items (Editorials, Corrections, Additions, Retractions, Letters, Comments, etc.) are published free of charge. THERE IS NO SUBMISSION CHARGES FOR THE JOURNAL.


For Indian Authors: 1000 INR

For Author(s) outside India: 25 $

MPCs cover the following:

  • The editorial procedure, including administration related to peer review, author revisions, and final decision-making.
