Article Publication Charges
EFORT Open Reviews offers a waiver on all article publication charges (APCs) for authors associated with EFORT: no APCs will be payable by members of EFORT participating national associations.
For authors who are not members of an EFORT participating association, an APC of €1000 will be payable for each accepted paper from 1 January 2017.
We recognise that some authors do not have access to funding to cover publication costs. EFORT Open Reviews offers a 100% waiver to corresponding authors from institutions based in Hinari Group A countries, and a 50% waiver to authors from institutions based in Hinari Group B countries.
