We have compiled a list of FAQs for easy understanding of our missions:
Q: What are the article processing charges? Fri, 24 Jan 2014, 12:00 AM
Smith and Franklin Academic Publishing Corporation is a unique platform providing services to scientific community free of cost. This mean there is no article processing charges for authors and no subscription fee for the readers on S&F journals.
However, "S&F Associated Journals" may have publication or processing charges, independently decided by the editorial board or their institutions/societies without any involvement of S&F.
Please ensure the fee structures at the "Processing Charges" page of the journal before proceeding for submission.

Q: How S&F sustainably publish without publication and subscription fees? Fri, 24 Jan 2014, 12:00 AM
We are using these three possibilities to manage running expenses: 1-Authors of articles that acknowledge funding agencies will be requested for optional donations if the funding agency allows, 2-Second section of the company is to publish quality books and the revenue generated from selling book will be used in this journal section, 3-We are developing online manuscript submission system (called e-Submit). We will sell this software along with its use in the company. Moreover, because most of work will be online managed by third parties, the running expenses will be lower than normally expected.
We never share your email addresses with other organisations. Your contact and profile information is only saved online in the S&F databases, which can be deleted anytime upon your request.
