Merit Research Journals is a self supporting
organization and does not receive funding from any institution /
government. Hence, the operation of the journal is solely
financed by the processing fees received from authors. The
processing fees are required to meet operations expenses such as
employees’ salaries, internet services, electricity etc. Being
an Open Access Publisher, Merit Research Journals are freely
accessible over the internet.
It costs money to produce a peer-reviewed, edited, and formatted
article that is ready for online publication, and to host it on
a server that is freely accessible without barriers around the
clock. We ask that - as a small part of the cost of doing the
research--the author, institution, or funding agency pays a
modest fee to help cover the actual cost of the essential final
step, the publication.
