Fees and funding

Article-processing charges

As of January 1st 2019, Molecular and Cellular Pediatrics will levy an article-processing charge of £980.00/$1535.00/€1250.00 for each article accepted for publication, plus VAT or local taxes where applicable. If the corresponding author's institution is a Member, the cost of the article-processing charge is covered by the membership, and no further charge is payable. In the case of authors whose institutions are Supporter Members, however, a discounted article-processing charge is payable by the author. 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.

Springer Open provides a free open access funding support service to help authors discover and apply for article processing charge funding.
