Publication Fees

When a paper has been accepted the author(s) will be charged a fee (Article Processing Charge, APC), to cover the costs associated with running the journal. Please note that no articles will be published until the APC has been paid. The APC depend on the article type and follows the HINARI waiver policy for developing countries:

  • Full reports with a maximum of 7 typeset pages ( 6000 words (inclusive of references) + 4 illustrations (tables or figures)): €900
  • Short communications (short case reports etc.) that do not exceed 2 typeset pages (inclusive of references and figures/tables): €600

Supplementary material that requires language editing or typesetting from the editorial team will involve a fee of 25 €/supplement (extensive material might count as two supplementary files due to the extra workload involved). Video files will be published free of charge.
