Open Access Fee Per Accepted Article ($500)

The Open Access fee is added to the mandatory publication fee.

Open Access refers to scholarly journals that are available online, free of charge to the reader; without financial, legal, or technical barriers other than those inseparable from gaining access to the internet itself.

Authors who purchase the Open Access option retain the copyright to their article and may distribute the article however they wish. Moreover, authors eligible for PubMed Central (PMC) will have the embargo lifted immediately with the Open Access option.
