Article Processing Charge (APC)

Pinnacle Science and Research Directs is committed to a minimal cost effective article processing charge (APC) for all manuscripts. 

Upon acceptance of a manuscript the APC of $300 USD must be processed by Research Directs prior to publication. If a manuscript is accepted for publication, an email including a payment link will be sent to the corresponding author. Manuscripts will not be published by Research Directs until the APC is finalized via PayPal.

Discounts and full manuscript article processing charge (APC) waivers are available for departments, universities and institutions that participate in the Pinnacle Science Open Access Initiative (PSOAI).
