Journal of Social Science publishes all its articles in full open access format. The scientific community and the general public have, for free, unlimited and immediate access to all content published in Journal of Social Science as soon as it is published on the Internet. This means that Journal of Social Science does not receive any income from selling subscriptions to print or view online versions of its journals or from charging "pay-per-view" fees. Therefore, Journal of Social Science needs to defray its editorial and production costs by collecting article processing charge (APC) from authors' institutes or research funder.

The value of Journal of Social Science article processing charge (APC) is USD 140.00 or equivalent to IDR 2,000,000. The APC covers editorial services and production of an article.
Submission to Journal of Social Science is free of charge. APC are paid when the editor states that the articles are accepted for processing to the next process.
The Journal of Social Science editor does not accept any payments to our bank account. All payments use a third partner. The editor will contact the author of the APC issue when the status of the article is accepted by the two reviewers.
There has been no APC waiver since the March 2020 submission.
