Our journals are Open Access and are self sustaining. We have not received grants or donations from the government, non-governmental organizations, foundations, corporate and multilateral organizations, institutions, private individuals and groups, international donors’ agencies, etc. In addition, we do not receive payment for subscription as everyone with access to the Internet is free to download electronic version of the full text (PDF) of the articles. No registration or password is required. Any material in the Journals may be freely copied, distributed and transmitted with appropriate acknowledgement.
