Fees and funding

Article processing charges (APC)

Authors who publish open access in Molecular and Cellular Pediatrics are required to pay an article processing charge (APC). The APC price will be determined from the date on which the article is accepted for publication.

The current APC, subject to VAT or local taxes where applicable, is: £1690.00/$2390.00/€1990.00

Open access funding

Visit Springer Nature’s open access funding & support services for information about research funders and institutions that provide funding for APCs.

Springer Nature offers agreements that enable institutions to cover open access publishing costs. Learn more about our open access agreements to check your eligibility and discover whether this journal is included.

Springer Nature offers APC waivers and discounts for articles published in our fully open access journals whose corresponding authors are based in the world’s lowest income countries (see our APC waivers and discounts policy for further information). Requests for APC waivers and discounts from other authors will be considered on a case-by-case basis, and may be granted in cases of financial need (see our open access policies for journals for more information). All applications for discretionary APC waivers and discounts should be made at the point of manuscript submission; requests made during the review process or after acceptance are unable to be considered.

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 (£1690.00/$2390.00/€1990.00). The sponsorship will cover the full cost of the article-processing charge. If you do not have access to a funding source, please claim sponsorship by selecting it in the eligibility checker upon acceptance of your article.
