PHI is run on a non-profit basis. Publisher covers nearly 100% of the expenses of publishing. Nevertheless, authors are required to participate in the cost of publishing with the article processing fees. 

The APC includes provision of Gold open access, online tools for editors and authors, article production and hosting, liaison with abstracting and indexing services, and customer services. It also includes website and server maintenance.

Adjustments in PHI’s APC prices are under regular review and are subject to change. We set APC prices based on the following criteria:

  • Journal quality;
  • The journal’s editorial and technical processes;
  • Competitive considerations;
  • Market conditions;
  • Other revenue streams associated with the journal.

The payment is made when your article is editorially accepted, is charged to either you, or your funder, institution or employer (Biaya publikasi dibayar setelah artikel dinyatakan accepted untuk di publikasikan). 


No refund or credit will be offered in the following circumstances:

  • Article retraction: PHI has provided full publishing services and is only able to recoup this investment through the APC.  The later retraction of the article does not detract from the publishing services provided or from our ongoing maintenance of the scientific record, e.g. archiving in perpetuity.
  • Article removal: In rare cases where articles are removed completely after acceptance for publication we will not refund or credit an APC. This is because PHI has provided publishing services and is only able to recoup this investment through the APC. The later removal of the article does not detract from this investment and is typically for reasons beyond our control.
  • Delays resulting from editorial decisions or author changes: These are a standard part of the publishing process.
  • Circumstances beyond our control: This may include, for example, where natural or other disasters prevent us from fulfilling our obligations.
