Waiver Policy

Authors have the opportunity to waive or discount the publication fee. The Contrarian: Finance, Accounting, and Business Research (CFABR) does not prevent the publication of appropriate works due to limited fees. The criteria for waiver or discount are as follows.

  • Waiver for the authors from low-income economies.
  • Discount for authors from lower-middle-income economies.
  • Waivers and discounts for authors with demonstrable needs.

To submit an application for a waiver/discount, authors are requested to do the following.
Authors apply for waivers and discounts the first time they submit an article.
Authors send a formal and signed application letter.
Authors attach a statement from the institution where the authors work.

Correspondence for requests for waivers and discounts can be sent to: contrarian.fabr@gmail.com
