Waiver Policy

Spectacular Journals (SJ) is a self supporting organization and does not receive funding from any institution/government. Hence, the management of the journal is solely financed by the handling fees received from authors. The manuscript handling fees are required to meet operations expenses such as manuscript processing, editing, publishing, online availability, internet services, webhosting, application development and support, etc. Being an open access journal, SJ does not receive payment for subscription as the journal is freely accessible over the internet. SJ provides immediate, worldwide free access to all published manuscripts. Readers can view, download, print, and redistribute any article without any financial barrier, enabling greater distribution of an article.

Spectacular Journals may grants waivers to some authors that are unable to afford manuscript handling fee. Authors who wish to apply for waivers must demonstrate their inability to afford the manuscript handling fee.

Upon application, corresponding authors from Low Income Countries and Lower Middle Income Countries may be granted a generous waiver.

Corresponding authors requesting for these waivers must strongly demonstrate why their waiver applications should be granted.  Authors who are eligible for waivers should apply immediately after the submission of their manuscripts.

To request a waiver, kindly send an application to accounts@spectacularjournals.org.
