Article Processing Charges (APCs)
PLPB 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 PLPB as soon as it is published on the Internet. This means that PLPB 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, PLPB needs to defray its editorial and production costs by collecting article processing charges (APCs) from authors' institutes or research funding bodies. The value of PLPB article processing charges (APCs) is $ 120.00 or equivalent to IDR 1,500,000.00. The APCs covers editorial services and production of an article. Submission to PLPB is free of charge. APCs are paid when the editor states that the articles are accepted for processing to the next process.
