Publication Fees

Publication in Infection Ecology & Epidemiology is free of charge for papers submitted before March 31, 2016. However, if the author's university or institute officially maintains a central fund to cover costs for Open Access Publishing, or the article describes results from research funded by an Open Access-positive funder, a publication fee will be charged as follows; these fees will also be applied to papers submitted after April 1, 2016:

 

  • Regular article: EUR 1350 excl VAT (Europe)/USD 1575 (rest of the world) for up to 8 typeset pages (US A4), and EUR 65/USD 75 per page over 8.
  • Short communications: EUR 800/USD 950 up to 4 typeset pages (US A4), and EUR 65/USD 75 per page over 5.
  • PhD Review: EUR 650 excl VAT (Europe)/USD 750 (rest of the world) for up to 8 typeset pages (US A4), and EUR 65/USD 75 per page over 8.

It is customary that the author’s institution covers the publication costs for articles resulting from research undertaken at the institution, or that money has been earmarked in the grant or stipend the author has received to be able to carry out the research. For a list of OA-friendly universities and funding agencies, please see here. Additional information on how to claim reimbursement/support for publication fees can be found here.

The total sum will be charged to the author(s) upon acceptance of his/her article. It is the publication year that governs the publication fee, not the submission year.
