BM-Publisher journals offer the optional open access model. This means that authors may chose to pay for open access publication in order to make their article freely available. Open access publishing proposes a relatively new model for scholarly journal publishing that provides immediate, worldwide, barrier-free access to the full-text of all published articles. Open access allows all interested readers to view, download, print, and redistribute any article without a subscription, enabling far greater distribution of an author's work than the traditional subscription-based publishing model. Many authors in a variety of fields have begun to realize the benefits that open access publishing can provide in terms of increasing the impact of their work.
In an open access model, the publication costs of an article are paid from an author's research budget, or by their supporting institution, in the form of Article Processing Charges. These Article Processing Charges replace subscription charges and allow publishers to make the full-text of every published article freely available to all interested readers. In addition, authors who publish in open access model retain the copyright of their work, which is released under a “Creative Commons Attribution License,” enabling the unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction of an article in any medium, provided that the original work is properly cited. Apart from these Article Process Charges, there are no submission charges, page charges, or color charges. The fees to be paid following the acceptance of an article are indicated in the table below:
Manuscript Type APC
Research Article $250
Review Article $250
Clinical Study $250
BM-Publisher provides an automatic waiver of Article Processing Charges to authors based in any of the countries which were classified by the World Bank as Low-income economies or Lower-middle-income economies. You can find more details about our waiver policy HER.
If your institute is a member of BM-Publisher or American Society of BioMedicine institutional membership program, you will not be subject to any article processing charges. Please ask your librarian to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org in order to receive a quotation or to arrange for an “Institutional Membership” for your organization.
Once an article has been accepted for publication as open access, any Article Processing Charges on the article become due. The submitting author assumes responsibility for the Article Processing Charges, and BM-Publishe will not issue refunds of any kind. If you have mistakenly paid more than required, we will refund the extra amount paid within 30 days. The transaction charges will be deducted while giving refund.
