General Information on Article Processing Charges (APC)
Article Processing Charges

All journals published by Xia & He Publishing are open access. Open Access provides anyone in the world free and immediate online access to the scholarly literature to read, download, distribute, and reuse. To enable us to maintain a sustainable open access platform and thus serve as a conduit for communication among scholarly communities, authors pay an article processing charge (APC) for manuscripts that have undergone peer review and been accepted for publication. The APC is payable to Xia & He Publishing by the author(s) or research sponsor(s).
