- Free Access: Everyone has unrestricted access to the full-text of all articles published in International Journal Of Arts, Humanities And Social Studies.


- Reuse Permissions: Readers are free to reuse the published material as long as proper accreditation or citation to the original publication is provided.


Article Processing Charge (APC): To support open access publication, authors’ institutes or research funding agencies cover a comparatively low APC for accepted articles. This charge helps cover costs like peer review, copyediting, typesetting, long-term archiving, and journal management.








No special permission is required to reuse any part of an article, including figures and tables, published by International Journal Of Arts, Humanities And Social Studies. For articles published under a Creative Commons CC BY license, any part of the article can be reused without permission, provided the original article is properly cited.

Advantages of Open Access for Authors:




Open access offers several benefits for authors, including:

- High Availability and Visibility: Our open access articles are freely accessible to anyone with an internet connection. This increased accessibility enhances the visibility and reach of your research.


- Higher Citation Impact: Open access articles tend to receive more citations due to their wider availability and visibility among researchers.


- Lower Publishing Costs: Open access publishers charge authors’ institutes for research funding agencies to cover the costs of editorial handling and editing. The article processing charge (APC) is typically lower than what traditional subscription-based publishers charge. Our APC is the same for all article lengths, encouraging the publication of comprehensive papers.
