Publishing with open access is not without costs. Consortia Academia defrays those costs from donations, because it does not have subscription charges for its online research content, believing instead that immediate, world-wide, barrier-free, open access to the full text of research articles is in the best interests of the scientific community.
The main goal of Consortia Academia is to provide an avenue for novice and experts scholars and researchers to publish and share their work to the academe through an open access environment. Furthermore, Consortia Academia seeks not to earn profit from publications, however, donations are needed to provide for the maintenance of the infrastructure system for open access environment, develops and maintains electronic tools for peer review and publication, manuscript layout fees, and expenses regarding index inclusions in CrossRef (enabling electronic citation in other journals that are available electronically).
NOTE: Donations is entirely voluntary and will not affect the status of your submission.
