Since there is no charge for online access, the costs of running the journal will be borne by the contributors themselves. Contributors will be asked to pay a fee for their contribution to be published only if it is deemed worthy of publication by the referees following the double-blind reviewing process.

Payment will range between a minimum of 210 euros and a maximum of 300 euros, on the basis of the GDP ranking of the country of affiliation according to the Global Finance website ( as follows:
Country ranking 1st to 50th: 300 euros
Country ranking 51st to 100th: 270 euros
Country ranking 101st to 150th: 240 euros
Country ranking from 151st onwards: 210 euros.

In the case of a paper written by two or more contributors coming from different affiliations, only the ranking of the country with the lower GDP will be taken into consideration. Payment is to be made per contribution irrespective of the number of contributors. In other words, a single-authored contribution and a co-authored contribution have the same cost. Naturally, no charge will be made for any contribution that is not considered worthy of publication.
