Article Processing Charge

All articles published in our journals are open access and freely available online, immediately upon publication. This is made possible by an article-processing charge (APC) that covers the range of publishing services we provide. This includes provision of online tools for editors and authors, article production and hosting, liaison with abstracting and indexing services, and customer services. The APC, payable when your manuscript is editorially accepted and before publication, is charged to either you, or your funder, institution or employer.

The corresponding author of the manuscript is responsible for arranging the payment to Community Health Society Malaysia (CHSM), payable upon editorial acceptance of the manuscript. An Article Publishing Charge (APC) of MYR100 for Malaysian authors, USD25 for international or non-Malaysian authors and RM50 for CHSM members will be imposed on authors upon acceptance of a manuscript for publication. Please note that the USD25 article processing charge does not cover bank charges and that all bank charges (if any) are to be borne by the author. Please add the required bank charges (if applicable) when performing the bank transfer.

Payment method:

IJPHCS only accept bank transfer or deposit as method of payment.  IJPHCS will inform you about payment instructions for bank transfer or deposit after your manuscript is accepted for publication. Your manuscript will only be published after we receipt the payment.

Waiver Policy

We seek your understanding that CHSM is not able to waive the APC of any author.
