Article Publication Charges

The Journal of Advanced Studies in Social Sciences (JASSS) levies a publication fee of 15,000 PKR for accepted articles. This fee covers the editorial process, peer review, and online publication of your research.

Fee Waivers:

JASSS recognizes the financial limitations faced by some scholars and offers fee waivers in the following categories:

  • Scholars from Less Developed Countries (LDCs): Corresponding authors affiliated with institutions located in countries designated by the United Nations as LDCs are eligible for a full of partial fee waiver.

  • Distinguished Research: Articles deemed exceptionally impactful by the editorial team may be considered for a partial or full fee waiver. This decision will be based on the paper's originality, methodological rigor, and potential contribution to the field.

Applying for a Fee Waiver:

If you believe you qualify for a fee waiver, please submit a request along with your manuscript. The request should clearly state the category under which you are applying (e.g., affiliation with an LDC institution) and provide any supporting documentation (e.g., country classification for LDC status).

JASSS is committed to making its platform accessible to a broad range of scholars. We encourage you to inquire about fee waivers if applicable to your situation.
