African Journal of Geography and Regional Planning
Some of our journals operate open access and subscription-based publishing options. The open access option requires authors to pay a fee upon acceptance of their articles for publication. If an author choose not to pay a fee, his paper could be publish under the standard subscription-based option. So, the copyright for the published article would be transferred to the journal.
For this reason, the reader is required to pay for the content that they read. It is only those who have purchased a subscription to such articles that will have access to them. A flat rate of $20 is required to access our subscription-based articles. Please contact us through any of this email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any question regarding your subscription.
