There are no any fees or charges for manuscript processing and/or publishing articles in American Journal of BioMedicine.
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
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.
