Article Processing Charges
Article Processing Charge (APC):

Payment of the APC fee (directly to the publisher) by the author or a funding body is not required until AFTER the manuscript has gone through the full double-blind peer review process and the Editor(s)-in-Chief at his/her/their full discretion has/have decided to accept the manuscript based on the results of the double-blind peer review process. 

What Does IGI Global's Open Access APC Cover?

In the traditional subscription-based model, the cost to the publisher to produce each article is covered by the revenue generated by journal subscriptions. Under OA, all the articles are published under a Creative Commons (CC BY) license; therefore, the authors or funding body will pay a one-time article processing charge (APC) to offset the costs of all of the activities associated with the publication of the article manuscript, including:

  • Digital tools used to support the manuscript management and review process
  • Typesetting, formatting and layout
  • Online hosting
  • Submission of the journal's content to numerous abstracts, directories, and indexes
  • Third-party software (e.g. plagiarism checks)
  • Editorial support which includes manuscript tracking, communications, submission guideline checks, and communications with authors and reviewers
  • All promotional support and activities which include metadata distribution, press releases, promotional communications, web content, ads, fliers, brochures, postcards, etc. for the journal and its published contents
  • The fact that all published articles will be freely accessible and able to be posted and disseminated widely by
    the authors
  • Professional line-by-line English language copy editing and proofreading*

*This service is only performed on article manuscripts with fully paid (not discounted or waived) APC fees.

APC Subsidizing and Funding

To assist researchers in covering the costs of the APC in OA publishing, there are various sources of OA funding. Additionally, unlike many other publishers, IGI Global offers flexible subsidies, 100% Open Access APC funding, discounts, and more. Learn More

Reviews & Statements

The increasing business use of wireless and mobile technologies on a variety of devices has accelerated the need for a better understanding of the technologies involved. Readers of this journal will be able to keep up to date with the important developments in this area and be better prepared to assess how they fit into the wider information systems field.

– Jairo Gutierrez, University of Auckland, New Zealand

Communications and networking technologies continute to fuel the flat world revolution. While there are many technical sources, IJBDCN continues to be the most authorative source for network technologies that matter to business. The blend of business, policy, management and technology as applied to communications and networking makes it a must read for all ICT students.

– Samir Chatterjee, Claremont Graduate University, USA

With the advent of the Internet, businesses worldwide have transformed dramatically. Telecom infrastructure is undergoing revolutionary changes everywhere. To keep pace with the developments in these two fields, leading researchers and practitioners should update themselves with the best practices in communications and networking. The International Journal of Business Data Communications and Networking offers a timely and critical platform to foster further understanding of how data communication technologies can improve organizational performances.
