Junior researchers and corresponding authors from LMIC may also be eligible for automatic article publication charge waivers and discounts in this journal, if they have no other funding available. Junior researchers are defined as corresponding authors of less than 35 years of age at the time of submission, if there is no other funding (research funding of the junior investigator or his/her research mentor, Wiley Open Access Institutional Agreement). Requests for APC waivers for APC-eligible articles should be directed to the Editor-in-Chief ([email protected]) only prior to or upon submission of the article. 

Automatic article publication charge waivers and discounts will be given to authors from countries on the Waivers and Discounts List. Authors should submit a waiver or discount request during the submission of their article.

Authors who receive funding from an agency or institution with a Wiley Open Access Account do not pay directly. The charge is paid by the institution or funder. Authors whose institutions have paid the Wiley Open Access partner fee are eligible for a discount on the APC and, on acceptance, the discounted fee is payable by the author. Please see Wiley’s information on agreements with funders and institutions and our Author Compliance Tool to find out more about what arrangements your funder may have made to pay for Open Access. More details are available here. 

The journal does not charge any submission fees or page charges.
