  1. Journal understands that sometimes authors cannot fit the total research outcome in 12 pages. But to our observation, such situations arise very rarely. Journal calls such papers Lengthy Paper Online Publication. IJICAR has set limit to maximum number of pages to 20 for lengthy paper online publication. Number of maximum authors is restricted to 4. Different charges apply to the papers which fit in this category.
  2. Sometimes multidisciplinary or interdisciplinary research may need more people to get involved and for such cases journal allows more number of authors than standard limit which is restricted to maximum of 6 authors. IJICAR calls such papers Many Authors Online Publication which has different publication charges. Number of pages is restricted to standard maximum of 12 in this category.
  3. The combination of lengthy papers and many authors is called as Lengthy Paper with Many Authors and attracts different charges than above categories.
  4. To promote the research in early education, journal provides discount to papers published by students if they are below under graduate level. Conditions for such publication are –
    • Primary Author needs to be a full time student of any course below graduation level.
      • Proof(s) need to be submitted to the satisfaction of the IJICAR.
    • Maximum number of pages – 12
    • Maximum Authors – 4
  5. There can be legitimate cases from un-developed or developing countries where authors have genuine and quality research material but cannot bear or pay the publication charges.

Below are the minimum conditions to apply for discount in this category –
