Journal Business Model


All readers and authors of the Quantitative Economics and Management Studies (QEMS) can enjoy the benefits of free open access. We believe that free open access promotes accessibility and use throughout the world, serving the professional and scientific community, as well as the wider community. Because there are no fees charged for access, the Quantitative Economics and Management Studies (QEMS) offsets the cost of publication (including the costs of peer review management, journal production, online hosting, and long-term archiving) by charging article processing charges (APC) to authors, institutions, or funders for each published article.

Article Submission Charges (ASC)

There are no article submission charges.

Article Processing Charges (APC)

All articles accepted after January 1, 2022, are subject to "Article Processing Charges" to provide free access to readers and to cover the costs of peer review management, journal production, online hosting, and long-term archiving. This APC is valid for the current calendar year and may be changed at any time at the sole discretion of the publisher. The submitting author is responsible for payment of the APC and must confirm, at the time of submission, that s/he will organize payment of the APC, should the article be accepted for publication. This responsibility may not be delegated to any third party unless agreed to by the publisher. Note: APC will be billed after the article "Accepted" and will not affect the peer review process.

For article accepted per January 1, 2022:
All authors from Indonesia: USD200,-
International collaboration (IDN and abroad authors): USD170,-
Author from abroad: USD150,-

We request that you evaluate your potential to obtain funding for the Article Processing Charge before submission, not after acceptance.
