Rivera Publications is a leading international academic publishing house, renowned for promoting knowledge dissemination and scholarly exchange across the globe. Since our inception, we have been committed to fostering a culture of intellectual growth, innovation, and integrity. Our portfolio spans a broad spectrum of academic disciplines, including the sciences, social sciences, humanities, and arts. We are committed to increasing the value of scientific research and making it freely accessible to the public community beyond social and economic barriers.
At Rivera Publications, we believe that knowledge is the cornerstone of societal progress. We are dedicated to providing a platform for researchers, scholars, and professionals to share their insights, discoveries, and perspectives. Our rigorous double-blind peer-review process ensures the highest standards of academic integrity, enabling us to publish research that is not only innovative but also credible and impactful.
At Rivera Publications, we stringently exercise the scholarly open-access model by:
- transparently adhering to the editorial policies in the service of the academia.
- providing a robust and comprehensive platform for the authors to share their valuable work.
Our portfolio includes an array of scholarly journals, each tailored to cater to the diverse needs of the global academic community. We collaborate with academic institutions, research organizations, and scholarly societies worldwide to ensure that the latest research findings reach the widest possible audience.
Rivera Publications is more than just a publishing company; we are a community of passionate individuals committed to the pursuit of knowledge. Our team comprises dedicated professionals who work tirelessly to support authors throughout the publication process, from manuscript submission to post-publication services. We are proud to offer a supportive, inclusive, and collaborative environment that nurtures creativity and intellectual growth.
Beyond our commitment to academic excellence, Rivera Publications is deeply invested in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). We recognize the profound impact that businesses can have on society and the environment, and we are committed to operating in a manner that is socially responsible and sustainable.
Our CSR initiatives are guided by three core principles: promoting access to knowledge, supporting education, and protecting the environment. We believe that knowledge should be accessible to all, regardless of geographical location or socio-economic status. To this end, we offer a range of publishing options, allowing researchers worldwide to access our content free of charge.
In our commitment to education, we partner with schools and universities in underprivileged regions, providing them with free or heavily discounted access to our resources. This helps to support early career researchers and scholars who might otherwise lack the necessary resources to pursue their academic ambitions.
Our environmental responsibility is reflected in our operations. We have transitioned to a predominantly digital platform, significantly reducing our carbon footprint. We also participate in various environmental initiatives, such as tree planting campaigns and recycling programs, to offset any unavoidable emissions.
At Rivera Publications, we understand that our success is intertwined with the well-being of the communities we serve. Therefore, we strive to make a positive impact, not just through the knowledge we disseminate, but also through our actions as corporate citizens.
All articles published in our journals are open-access and are immediately available online upon publication.
Thus, our journals differ from standard journals fundamentally because articles are not published behind subscription paywalls and are therefore accessible to anyone with an internet connection. We do not have a print version and instead, publish articles in a continuous format online. To make up for the costs of publishing we ask authors to pay an article publication charge (APC) if their article is accepted. It is free to submit, and the charge is used to cover the cost of publishing, including peer review, hosting the article online, and liaison with abstracting and indexing services and customer services.
We ask authors to pay an article publication charge to cover the costs we incur in preparing their article for publication. However, we understand that not all authors have grants which fund the publication of all, or even part of the publishing fee, and this is why we provide publication fee waivers for authors from low and lower-middle-income counties.
We will still publish articles from authors for free who do not have access to funding or for authors with demonstrable needs, as long as their work passes the peer review process.
In this way, we can carry on publishing research from low and lower-middle-income countries and from authors who have little or no funding, but those authors who have access to funds for publication and are able to pay should pay the publication fee for professional publishing services they have received.
The Article Processing Charges (APC) for our journals are currently waived off for manuscripts submitted until 31 July 2023 considering the overall economic slowdown in different countries and to strengthen our support to the academic fraternity.

At present, the research community is flooded with numerous open access publishers. Then again, the question remains: Why is there a need for a new open access publisher?
In this fast-paced world, where people are engaged in doing momentous things, we consider our role crucial to publish their findings and deliver the research to widest possible audience. While there are some big players in this industry, offering some of the best features and robust customer service, the charges are too high, especially for authors belonging to developing countries. Similarly, there are publishers who—with low article processing charges—claim to offer a transparent and quick review process, but are questionable on some or the other grounds. Thus, in order to minimize the cost of publishing, while maintaining the review quality, we have designed our open access model in such a way so as to allow authors—with limited funding—publish and share their research with the audience it deserves.
At Rivera, we aim to publish knowledge efficiently. Our Editors who run the review process will give you a fair and constructive feedback. With our devoted team of editorial staff and deep industry expertise, we aim to significantly contribute to this industry and to the scientific community, while providing authors a unique publishing experience at a very affordable cost.
All the manuscripts submitted to Rivera Publications are subjected to rigorous peer-review process, in order to ensure that only relevant and authentic research with proper evidences is published. All the submitted work undergoes double-blind peer review process, and all the revisions are carried out as per the recommendations made by the field-experts.
Peer Review Process
Every manuscript submitted for publication is read by an Editor, for an initial review. If the Editor feels that the paper agrees with the editorial policies and with a minimum quality level, it is sent to at least two reviewers. The reviewers will evaluate the manuscript on different levels and share their opinion with the Editor. Based on the recommendations made by the reviewers and Editor's own evaluation, the Editor will recommend a final publication decision (accept, reject, revise). Editorial office has no role in recommending or taking part in publication decision.
The final decision is based on the recommendations made by the reviewers and Editor’s own evaluation.
Unlike, other publishers, we focus on thorough and quality peer-review, double checking the quality before publishing any data/results.
All the submitted work first undergoes an initial screening and pre-review check for plagiarism. If the paper is approved at this stage, it is forwarded to the Editor, who then assigns the paper to reviewers. However, if at this stage, any type of plagiarism is detected by Editors/Reviewers, the paper is sent back to authors for revision or rejected depending upon the quantity of similarity, which is again the sole decision of the Editor.
The Editor might ask the Editorial Office to locate and assign reviewers; however, the researched reviewers’ details are shared with the Editors prior to inviting. Only when the Editor approves the reviewers, an invitation is sent to these reviewers to referee the manuscript.
The whole process might take considerable time, and, also, since we are dealing with external scholars here, a timely response is never guaranteed. However, we make sure that each step is completed within the speculated time frame so as not to delay the author.
Editor decision and reviewers recommendations are shared with the authors for manuscripts receiving revise decisions for revision. After the revised paper is submitted, it is sent to the original reviewers if they are available to conduct the second round of the peer review. However, if the original reviewers are not available, new field experts are invited, and, should they choose to evaluate the revised manuscript, recommendations made by the reviewers on the original manuscript are shared and the reviewers are clearly explained of the updates on this revised paper.
The authors might feel that the process might take a lot of time before the final publication, but, at Rivera Publications, we are adamant on maintaining quality of the journal by publishing only relevant and significant research.
