No APC Policy of Creative Saplings (CS) (ISSN: 0974-536X)

Creative Saplings (CS) is committed to promoting the open-access publication of high-quality research in the English language and literature without imposing any Article Processing Charges (APCs) on authors. The journal does not charge fees for submitting, processing, or publishing articles. The journal is able to cover its costs through alternative means of the Society for Academic Facilitation and Extension (Regd.)

The decision to implement a No APC Policy aims to reduce financial barriers to publication for authors, particularly those from low- and middle-income countries. This policy also ensures that the journal's content is accessible to a broader audience, regardless of their ability to pay.

Creative Saplings (CS) believes that open access to research is essential for the advancement of knowledge and that financial barriers should not limit the dissemination of research findings. The journal is committed to promoting open-access publishing to foster global collaboration, innovation, and progress.
