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.

Information for JSIR members

(Information updated on 22 March 2023)

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.
