Fees and funding
Open access publishing is not without costs. Tropical Medicine and Health therefore levies an article-processing charge of £705.00/$1105.00/€900.00 (plus VAT or local taxes where applicable) for each article accepted for publication.
If the corresponding author's institution participates in our open access membership program, some or all of the publication cost may be covered (more details available on the membership page). 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.
BioMed Central provides a free open access funding support service to help authors discover and apply for article processing charge funding. Visit our OA funding and policy support page to view our list of research funders and institutions that provide funding for APCs, and to learn more about our email support service.
Tropical Medicine and Health is the official journal of the Japanese Society of Tropical Medicine (JSTM). Authors publishing in Tropical Medicine and Health can request a discount on the journal’s article-processing charge (APC) that is payable upon editorial acceptance of articles. The discount must be requested during the article submission process, by entering a code that can be obtained from the JSTM office. The discounted APC is €450 for Society members (Regular, Postdoctoral and Student membership holders), and €700 for other authors.
