ARTICLE PROCESSING FEES (APF)
While the traditional publication model relies on restricting access to published research to recoup the costs of the publication process, the open access publishing model treats publication as the last phase of the research process. Instead of charging users a fee to read the content, an article-processing fee is required at the beginning of the process. This charge covers the entire cost of the publication process. This includes peer-reviewing, editing, publishing, maintaining, and archiving, and allows immediate access to the full text versions of the research articles.
APPLIED FEES BY GMR
To provide Open Access, GMR uses a model to offset expenses—including those of peer review management, journal production, and online hosting and archiving—by article-processing fee to the authors, institutions, or funders for each article published.

Fast Editorial Execution and Review Process (FEE-Review Process):
Genitics and Molecular Research is participating in the Fast Editorial Execution and Review Process (FEE-Review Process) with an additional prepayment of $99 apart from the regular article processing fee. Fast Editorial Execution and Review Process is a special service for the article that enables it to get a faster response in the pre-review stage from the handling editor as well as a review from the reviewer. An author can get a faster response of pre-review maximum in 3 days since submission, and a review process by the reviewer maximum in 5 days, followed by revision/publication in 2 days. If the article gets notified for revision by the handling editor, then it will take another 5 days for external review by the previous reviewer or alternative reviewer.
Acceptance of manuscripts is driven entirely by handling editorial team considerations and independent peer-review, ensuring the highest standards are maintained no matter the route to regular peer-reviewed publication or a fast editorial review process. The handling editor and the article contributor are responsible for adhering to scientific standards. The article FEE-Review process of $99 will not be refunded even if the article is rejected or withdrawn for publication.
The corresponding author or institution/organization is responsible for making the manuscript FEE-Review Process payment. The additional FEE-Review Process payment covers the fast review processing and quick editorial decisions, and regular article publication covers the preparation in various formats for online publication, securing full-text inclusion in a number of permanent archives like HTML, XML, and PDF, and feeding to different indexing agencies.
