Article Processing Charges

Open Medscience adopts an open access model, whereby the author and/or institution pays the charges to publish an article online. Traditionally, these costs were met by the readers and created limitations to authors regarding ‘who views what.’

The article processing charge (APC) takes into account initial checks for aims and scope, analysis for plagiarism, peer review process, editing, online publishing, archiving to enable access to full-text versions of the articles published in PDF and enhanced HTML formats.

Open Medscience will consider individual cases with respect to low income countries regarding APC fees.
