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.

Reviews & Statements

The IJISSC is a journal that is on the cutting edge of current research. I am particularly impressed by the substantive and methodological range of its articles, its openness to differing perspectives, and its publication of interdisciplinary work.

– Allan J. Lichtman, Distinguished Professor of History, American University, USA

It is with great honor to serve on the editorial board of this journal. While we enjoy the convenience the technology has brought us in this information era, we have also encountered enormous changes it has impacted our lives. This is a great journal that focuses on the information technology and yet more importantly the social impacts causing in every field and discipline. In my opinion the contribution of this journal is distinctive and stimulating.

– Dr. Wilfred V Huang, George G Raymond Chair, Professor of Management Information Systems, Editor-in-chief of the International Journal of Chinese Culture and Management (IJCCM), Alfred University, USA

IJISSC is well positioned in a promising crossroad, plainly situated within a reinforced-loop. In fact societies live because they change and these days information technologies are the main drivers of change. So the scope is perfect for IJISSC.

– Dr José Figueiredo, Professor of Engineering and Management, IST, Technical University of Lisbon, Portugal

This journal offers the opportunity to target research at the cutting edge where technology strategy meets organizational performance, and where organizational performance challenges and provides opportunities for success.

– Gary A. Bojes, United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) – Rural Development Utility Programs, USA

I strongly believe the social change incurred by IS/IT is an important area of research and am confident that this will be a fruitful area for academic and practical research.

– Jungwoo Lee, Yonsei University, Korea

IJISSC serves as a catalyst to stimulate a hot-debate respecting to the role plays the technology in our ever changing world. One of the aspects that characterize the journal is not only the open-mind of its editors as well as the published inter-disciplinary points of views. It exhibits a high-quality platform to explore the benefits and problems of technology for society.

– Maximiliano Korstanje, University of Palermo
