Fees and funding
Open access publishing is not without costs. BioPsychoSocial Medicine therefore levies an article-processing charge of £1370/$2145/€1745 for each article accepted for publication. We routinely waive charges for authors from low-income countries. For other countries, article-processing charge waivers or discounts are granted on a case-by-case basis to authors with insufficient funds. Authors can request a waiver or discount during the submission process. For further details, see our article-processing charge page.
BioPsychoSocial Medicine offers a discount on the article-processing charge, if the first author of an article is a member of the Japanese Society of Psychosomatic Medicine. Please visit the Society website for further information.
For non-members of the Society, some or all of the publication cost may be covered if the corresponding author's institution participates in our open access membership program (more details available on the membership page).
BioMed Central provides a free open access funding support service to help authors discover and apply for article processing charge funding.
