To cover the cost for providing our high-quality publishing service and free access to readers, authors pay a one-time article processing charge (APC) for manuscripts accepted after peer-review. There are no charges for rejected articles, no submission charges, and no surcharges based on the length of an article, figures or supplementary data. Editorial items (Editorials, Corrections, Additions, Retractions, Letters, Comments, etc.) are published free of charge. 
The APC is 400 USD but if you do not have funding support from your institution, waiver policy can be applied in the case of necessity. 

INTRODUCTION TO PARENTHETICAL CITATIONS
-The APA style calls for three kinds of information to be included in in-text citations. 
-The author's last name and the work's date of publication must always appear, and these items must match exactly the corresponding entry in the references list. 
-The third kind of information, the page number, appears only in a citation to a direct quotation.

IMPORTANT NOTE: All the opinions written in articles are under responsibilities of the authors. The published contents in the articles can not be used without being cited.
