Article Processing Charge (APC)

  Research in English language pedagogy was open access journal for both readers and authors; however , since this journal is funded by an non-profit organization and considering the enhanced submissions leading to the increase of journal costs, the publisher and editorial board decided to assign a small amount publication fee to authors whose paper will be accepted for publishing. It is worth mentioning that editorial board tried best to keep this amount at minimum. This small amount of fee will be spent in different parts of publication process including proofreading, lay out and page designing. So, the publication fee for authors is about 15$ (Equal to 2 Million IR Rial). They are obliged to pay it after acceptance of their paper. Non-Persian authors, who are not able to transfer money due to limitations in the bank system exchange, are excluded. The journal is still open access for readers.
