Publication Fee

In order to meet the rising cost of the publication, JHSS has started to charge an article processing fee from the local/national authors while an equivalent amount in US Dollars is charged from the international authors according to the international exchange rate. The processing fee of 20,000 PKR is charged only to the authors whose articles after passing through the initial process get approved by the referees. No fee is charged at the time of submission of articles.
