Publication Charges for JCDR

Open access publishing provides a model for scholarly journal publishing with immediate, worldwide, barrier-free access to the full-text of all published articles. Many authors realize the benefits that open access publishing can provide in terms of increasing the impact of their work. Internationally, in open access model, the publication costs of an article are paid from an author's research budget, or by their supporting institution, in the form of Publication or Article Processing Charges.

JCDR was initially supported by funds given by PremChand Shanti Devi foundation on returnable basis. Later for 4 years or so the journal use to meet its expenses from the various paid services taken up by the authors and from the print subscription. The journal runs on a Not-for-Profit Model and funds collected are reinvested to improve journal services. Many people give journal their valuable time and services. Some of them work honorary or on subsidized salary.
