Review of Human Rights (RHR)

On March 5, 2021 (amended May 1, 2021) the RHR has adopted a new policy regarding article processing and publication charges after a series of meetings held in February and March 2021. This policy was carefully designed after extensive discussions, especially on the growing culture of open access research publications.

Article Processing and Publication Charges

Track-I: Manuscripts that maintain high quality and meet the standard of the journal upon recommendation of the editorial board with or without minor corrections will be directly sent for a double-blind peer review. The Article processing and publication fee will be as follows:

a. Single-Author Article

Rs. 15,000/-

b. Multiple-Author Article

1. Principal Author (Rs. 10,000)

2. Co-Authors (Rs. 15,000 each)

Note: Articles requiring english language proof reading and editing will be charged additional Rs. 3000.

Fee/Charges Waiver

The journal has some limited funds available to waive off fully or partially the article processing charges and publication fees. The authors who want to request waiver should write it to the editor in cover letter.


Articles getting more than 10 citations within a year in Scopus journals will be given an honorarium of USD 100.
