Fees and funding

Article-processing charges

Open access publishing is not without costs. Inflammation and Regeneration therefore levies an article-processing charge of £1660.00/$2390.00/€2080.00 (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.

Members of the Japanese Society of Inflammation and Regeneration (JSIR) can request a discount on the journal’s article-processing charge (APC) that is payable upon editorial acceptance of articles. In order to receive the discount, authors have to submit the code during the process of manuscript submission. Please contact the JSIR office prior to submission and request the code.

The APCs for commissioned articles are covered by the JSIR, so authors do not need to pay the APC.
