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-anonymized 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-anonymized 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

It is my pleasure to congratulate the editors of The International Journal of Grid and High Performance Computing (IJGHPC) for a job well done. The quality of the papers and the scope of recent topics provide the reader like me with an up-to-the-moment resource in the area of Grid and High Performance Computing. This journal is unique as it brings together in one place relevant theoretical frameworks and the latest empirical research findings in the area. These topics are becoming ubiquitous, viz., throughput performance, reliability, scalability, security and many other categories including societal, economical and business aspects.

– Professor Frank Zhigang Wang, Chairman, IEEE Computer Society, UK & Republic of Ireland Chapter, Head, School of Computing, University of Kent, UK

With the ever changing landscape in high performance computing, I keep pace with new developments through the highly valuable resource - The International Journal of Grid and High Performance Computing


As a constant reader of IJGHPC, from its very beginning in early 2009, I highly value the breadth and depth of the scientific articles on HPC, Grids and Clouds, that cover current theory and practice, challenges, and problems, especially implementations.

– Prof. Wolfgang Gentzsch, HPC Entrepreneur & Executive Consultant, Regensburg Area, GermanyT

here has been a huge demand to meet the standards for developing a heterogeneous distributed model to manipulate hardware, software and datasets. IJGHPC bridges the gap in a distributed environment among researchers, engineers & public to establish a smooth communication, resource discovery, sharing of resources and collaboration in an effective manner. The journal is primarily devoted to promote, coordinate and integrate several developments in the fields of grid and cloud computing.

– Dr. S. Hariharan B.E.,M.E., Ph.D., Associate Professor and Head, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, TRP Engineering College (SRM Group), Tamilnadu, India.
