PUBLICATION FEE POLICY

The publication charges policy of IBLL has been managed by Research Syndicate Academy (RSA), which is a research institute having a Research Mandate, registered by the Securities Exchange Corporation of Pakistan (SECP). Various Journals are being sponsored by many organizations, societies, and other groups. Owing to such sponsoring and funding, they do not charge any publication charges. RSA is neither being funded nor financed by any organization or society. IBLL is trying to get it indexed by the world best indexing agencies like JCR, SSCI, WOS etc. Our mission is not only to facilitate our local researchers but also to meet international and global academia.
