Revenue Sources and Publication Charges


All readers and authors of Malaysian Journal of Syariah and Law can enjoy the benefits of free open access. We believe that free open access promotes accessibility and use throughout the world, serving the professional and scientific community, as well as the wider community. Because there are no fees charged for access, Malaysian Journal of Syariah and Law 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.

Article Processing Charges

All articles accepted after June 1, 2019, are subject to "Article Processing Charges" to provide free access to readers and to cover the costs of peer review management, journal production, online hosting, and long-term archiving. This APC is valid for the current calendar year and may be changed at any time at the sole discretion of the publisher. The submitting author is responsible for payment of the APC and must confirm, at the time of submission, that s/he will organize payment of the APC, should the article be accepted for publication. This responsibility may not be delegated to any third party unless agreed to by the publisher. 

Note: APC will be billed after the article "Accepted" and will not affect the peer review process.  

For article accepted for 2024 publication and onwards:

USD 550 (International author)
MYR 2500 (Domestic author)

We request that you evaluate your potential to obtain funding for the Article Processing Charge before submission, not after acceptance.
