Waiver Policy & Article Processing Charge (APC)

Institute of Accounting and Finance publishes Oblìk ì fìnansi in full open-access under a Creative Commons (CC BY-NC 4.0) license. This allows the scientific community and the general public to gain unlimited, free and immediate access to scholarly articles and to reuse the content freely provided that proper attribution is given to the original authors. So, no payment is collected from the readers for accessing and using the articles.

To cover the cost of providing our high-quality publishing service and free access to readers, authors pay a one-time article processing charge (APC) for manuscripts accepted after peer-review. There are no charges for rejected articles, no submission charges, and surcharges based on the length of an article, figures, or supplementary data. 

APCs cover the following:

The editorial procedure, including administration related to peer review, author revisions, and final decision-making. Institute of Accounting and Finance employs in-house staff to manage the majority of this process, leaving editorial board members to make key scientific decisions and allowing them to concentrate on their research. To demonstrate its appreciation of the important work done by reviewers and editorial board members, the Institute of Accounting and Finance provides them with APC discounts and waivers. APCs also cover the administrative work done for rejected articles. In 2021, rejection rate across Oblìk ì fìnansi was 19% (in 2020 - 20%, in 2019 - 18%, in 2018 - 12%).

Article production: professional language editing, type-setting, formatting, and production in PDF, XML and HTML formats.

Provision of a unique DOI (Digital Object Identifier) for each article.

Article hosting and dissemination: website maintenance, contact with indexing databases.

Journal administration: including managing the journal website and editorial board and promoting the journal among the research community.
