Fees and funding

Article-processing charges

Open access publishing is not without costs. Molecular and Cellular Pediatrics therefore levies an article-processing charge of £1490.00/$2190.00/€1790.00 for each article accepted for publication, plus VAT or local taxes where applicable.

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.
