Article Processing Charges


Review of Economics and Finance is an Open Access journal accessible for free on the Internet. Yet, the print and online publication process does involve costs including those pertaining to setup and maintenance of the publication infrastructure, routine operation of the journal, processing of manuscripts through peer-reviews, editing, publishing, maintaining the scholarly record, and archiving.

To cover these costs, the journal depends on APC also called Publication Fee (US dollar $500) per article so that APC is mandatory (the mandatory policy of APC has been enforced since January 2018).

The cost of APC is very often assumed either by the organization funding the research published in the article, or by the institution at which the author is employed or by the author oneself. Authors pay a one-time Article Processing Charge (APC) to cover the costs of peer review administration and management, professional production of articles in PDF and other formats, and dissemination of published papers in various venues, in addition to other publishing functions. There are no surcharges based on the length of an article, figures or supplementary data.


There are no submission charges for ‘Review of Economics and Finance‘ whether the article is rejected, reviewed, or accepted.
Please note that Editorial Board of REF will be very selective, accepting only the articles on the basis of scholarly merit, research significance, research integrity and compliance with the journal style guidelines. REF Editorial Board respects and promotes submissions from any authors and contributors on the basis of research ability and experience without considering race, ethnics, nationality, citizenship, gender, financial means, or any of narrow frames of reference.
