Question: Are your journals a Close Access or Open Access Journals?
Answer: GSJ Publishers provides instant open access to its content in such a way, that makes research articles freely available to the global community, meaning; everyone has free and unlimited access to the full-text of articles published in Global Scholars Journals; manuscripts are freely available without subscription or price barriers; Papers are immediately released in open access format (no long waiting periods); Open Access publication is supported by authors' institutes or research funding agency by payment of a comparatively low Article Processing Fee (APF) for accepted articles.
Question: Why charge processing fee for publishing in GSJ?
Answer: We publish our journals using the open access model. Anyone can unlimitedly and immediately access all full text content, meaning does not have any income from selling print or online versions of its journals or from charging "pay-per-view" fees. As such, she uses the handling fees paid by authors in her day to day operations such as payment of different categories of staff, electricity generation, internet subscription, research, training and retraining, web hosting, awareness campaign, sustainability and funding of international offices, organization of conferences, corporate social responsibility, other production expenses etc.
It costs money to produce a peer-reviewed, edited, and formatted article that is ready for online publication, and to host it on a server that is freely accessible without barriers around the clock. We ask that as a small part of the cost of doing the research, the author, institution, or funding agency pays a fair fee to help cover the actual cost of the essential final step, the publication.
Authors are charged a fair handling fee for each accepted manuscript. Manuscripts are only published after the handling fee has been received. Publication fees may be paid by several different ways (we send the details of the bill and payment options after your manuscript is accepted for publication).

Larger audience: - Indeed, Open Access gives a global audience larger than that of any subscription-based journal and thus increases the visibility and impact of published works.
