American Journal of BioMedicine journal articles under two separate business models:
- Subscription articles whose publication is funded by payments that are made by subscribing individuals or institutions.
- Open access articles whose publication is funded by payments that are made by authors, their institution or funding bodies, commonly known as Article Publishing Charges (APCs).
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
American Journal of BioMedicine 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.
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 American Journal of BioMedicine 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.
American Journal of BioMedicine is optional open access and require article processing charges (APCs) to be paid following acceptance. To help support researchers who are unable to meet some or all of the costs associated with publishing open access, American Journal of BioMedicine operates a transparent waiver policy.
