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.

Reviews & Statements

The transition from concepts of health care quality measurement to their global operationalization is echoed in numerous journals where the appropriateness of care and the efficiency of its production are of essential focus. While our understanding of quality is widespread, the challenges remain for the systematic and reliable measurement, analysis, and use of findings toward performance improvement. The efficient production of services with desirable outcomes requires a multi-dimensional systems' approach, and a demonstration of intended outcomes. The International Journal of Reliable and Quality E-Healthcare provides an original and unique forum where knowledge from various disciplines is synthesized and shared for improving the appropriateness and safety of health care. Indeed, the Journal thoughtfully merges and intersects knowledge from clinical medicine, public health, economics, sociology and informatics addressing issues relevant to most healthcare professionals. The vision of the Journal is timely, its multi-disciplinary approach most needed, and the scholarly content immediately amenable to applied research, practice and policy.
