Visit our open access support portal and our Journal Pricing FAQs for further information.

Open access funding

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.

Springer Nature offers APC waivers and discounts for articles published in our fully open access journals whose corresponding authors are based in the world’s lowest income countries (see our APC waivers and discounts policy for further information). Requests for APC waivers and discounts from other authors will be considered on a case-by-case basis, and may be granted in cases of financial need (see our open access policies for journals for more information). All applications for discretionary APC waivers and discounts should be made at the point of manuscript submission; requests made during the review process or after acceptance are unable to be considered.

Information for JSIR members

The Japanese Society of Inflammation and Regeneration covers the article-processing charge (APC) for the papers submitted by the member of the society and for the papers invited by the journal. To receive this benefit, the JSIR 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.
