  • Article Submission Fee: IDR 0.00 Authors are not required to pay any submission fees when submitting articles to ATM.
  • Article Processing Charges (APCs) / Article Publication Fee: $200 (USD). This fee includes an 8% PayPal processing charge. The APCs support the open-access dissemination of research findings and cover various administrative and editorial costs associated with the management and publication of manuscripts. Upon acceptance of an article, either the authors or their affiliated institutions are expected to cover this fee. The fee provides for:
    • Standard publication of manuscripts up to twelve (12) pages. An additional charge of $10 per page will be applied for manuscripts exceeding this length.
    • DOI registration for each article.
    • Similarity check using Turnitin, with the final report available to authors upon request.
    • Layout editing to align with the journal's template and standards.

Fee Waiver Policy: The Editor holds the discretion to grant a full or partial waiver of the author fees under specific circumstances, such as financial constraints, unusually long manuscripts, or other valid reasons presented by the author at the time of submission. Authors seeking a waiver should indicate their request in the "comments to the Editor" section during submission. It's essential to request a waiver at this stage, as late requests are more likely to be declined. Importantly, the decision to grant a waiver will not influence the outcome of the manuscript review process.




Screening for Plagiarism

Plagiarism Detection:
APTISI Transactions on Management takes academic integrity seriously. To uphold this commitment, all manuscripts submitted to the journal undergo rigorous plagiarism screening.

Screening Tools:
The journal employs Turnitin, a leading plagiarism detection software, to ensure the originality of the content. Manuscripts found to have a similarity index of more than 25% may be subject to further scrutiny, revision, or rejection.

Author Responsibility:
Authors are responsible for ensuring that their submissions are unique and free from plagiarized content. It is crucial to appropriately cite and attribute sources to maintain the credibility and authenticity of the work.

Waiver Policy

Policy Overview: APTISI Transactions on Management (ATM) acknowledges that certain circumstances may warrant a waiver or reduction of author fees. The journal is committed to ensuring that financial constraints or other challenges do not hinder the publication of valuable research.

Criteria for Waiver: The Editor may consider granting a full or partial waiver of the author fees in specific situations, including:

  • Financial limitations faced by the author or their institution.
  • Exceptional length of the submitted manuscript.
  • Other compelling reasons provided by the author during submission.

Requesting a Waiver: Authors seeking a waiver should clearly state their request in the "comments to the Editor" section during the manuscript submission process. It is crucial to make this request at the initial submission stage, as subsequent requests might not be entertained.

Impartiality of Review Process: The decision to grant or deny a waiver is solely at the Editor's discretion and is independent of the manuscript's academic merit. Thus, the waiver decision will not influence the peer review and potential publication of the manuscript.
