Article Processing Charges (APCs)

CSER publishes all its articles in full open access format. The scientific community and the general public have, for free, unlimited and immediate access to all content published in CSER as soon as it is published on the Internet. This means that CSER does not receive any income from selling subscriptions to print or view online versions of its journals or from charging "pay-per-view" fees. Therefore, CSER needs to defray its editorial and production costs by collecting article processing charges (APCs) from authors' institutes or research funder.

  • The value of CSER article processing charges (APCs) is USD 150.00 or equivalent to IDR 1,800,000.00. The APCs covers editorial services and production of an article. 
  • Submission to CSER is free of charge. APCs are paid when the editor states that the articles are accepted for processing to the next process. 
  • The CSER editor does not accept any payments to our bank account. All payments use a third partner. The editor will contact the author of the APCs issue when the status of the article is accepted by at least two of three reviewers.
