Article Processing Charge

Syntax Idea publishes all its articles in full open access format. The scientific community and the general public have, for free, unlimited and immediate access to all content published in Syntax Idea as soon as it is published on the Internet. This means that Syntax Idea does not receive any income from selling subscriptions to print or view online versions of its journals or from charging "pay-per-view" fees. Therefore, Syntax Idea needs to defray its editorial and production costs by collecting article processing charge (APC) from authors' institutes or research funder.

The value of Syntax Idea article processing charge (APC) is USD 50.00 or equivalent to IDR 700,000. The APC covers editorial services and production of an article.


Submission to Syntax Idea is free of charge. APC are paid when the editor states that the articles are accepted for processing to the next process.


Syntax Idea editor does not accept any payments to our bank account. All payments use a third partner. The editor will contact the author of the APC issue when the status of the article is accepted by the two reviewers.
There has been no APC waiver since the March 2019 submission.
