Fees and funding

Article-processing charges

Open access publishing is not without costs. Molecular and Cellular Pediatrics therefore levies an article-processing charge of £1390.00/$2090.00/€1690.00 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.

SpringerOpen  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.

For more information on APCs please see our Journal Pricing FAQs


The German Society of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine (DGKJ) are providing financial support to aid any authors who require assistance with the article-processing charge (1750 EUR/ 1375 GBP/ 2150 USD). If you do not have access to a funding source, please request DGKJ sponsorship during the submission process, by entering the code RA-DGKJ-MACP-1118 on the payment page. The sponsorship will cover the full cost of the article-processing charge.
