Fees and funding

Article-processing charges

Open-access publishing is not without costs. Tropical Medicine and Health therefore levies an article-processing charge of £1990.00/$2890.00/€2390.00 for each article accepted for publication, plus VAT or local taxes where applicable. The APC is determined at the date of acceptance.

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.

Visit Springer Nature’s open access funding & support services for information about research funders and institutions that provide funding for APCs.

Springer Nature offers agreements that enable institutions to cover open-access publishing costs. Learn more about our open access agreements to check your eligibility and discover whether this journal is included.

Information for JSTM/ JAGH members

(Information updated on 22 March 2023)

The Japanese Society of Tropical Medicine covers the article-processing charge (APC) for the papers submitted by the member of the societies and for the papers invited by the journal. To receive this benefit, the JSTM/JAGH members and invited authors must claim the APC coverage at the time of editorial acceptance of their manuscript.

As from 22 March 2023, due to system change, authors are no longer requested to submit Membership Account Code to claim coverage of APC for society members/invited authors during the process of making new manuscript submission. Instead, members/invited authors are able to request APC coverage at editorial acceptance.

For questions, please contact the JSTM office or JAGH office.
