Author Fees

This journal charges authors the following fees.

Publication Fee: 200.00 (USD)
In order to provide Open Access, Journal of Student Research uses a model in which our expenses, including those of online hosting, plagiarism check, and the editorial process are recovered by charging a Publication Fee to the authors for each article once accepted to be published.
We do not charge a Submission Fee. You may freely make a login and submit your manuscript to the journal.

Scholarly feedback upon reviewing the manuscript will be provided to the author from our reviewers that are professors at institutions around the U.S. This feedback will not only help authors identify areas of improvement to their submission, but help them better understand the process in order to be successful at publication.

*If you have a Waiver Code that you want to use to waive article publication fee, please enter the code in the comments box under the Waiver Request option during Step 5 of the Submission Process.
