Article Processing Charge

All articles accepted are subject to "Article Processing Charges" to provide readers free access and cover the costs of publication processes.

All readers and authors of the Journal of Values and Character in Counseling can enjoy the benefits of free open access, meaning unlimited use and reuse of articles. We believe that free open access promotes accessibility and use worldwide, serving the professional and scientific community and the wider community. Because there are no fees for access, JVCC offsets the cost of publication (including the costs of peer review management, journal production, online hosting, and long-term archiving) by charging article processing charges (APC) to authors, institutions, or funders for each published article.

During the submission and peer-review process, there are no charges. The APC is charged to the author when their manuscript is editorially accepted or before the publication with the amount of 300000 (IDR). Further information to make payments will be notified along with the status of their manuscript being editorially accepted. We request that you evaluate your potential to obtain funding for the Article Processing Charge before submission, not after acceptance. Please note that the payment is non-refundable.
