Fees and funding

Article-processing charges

Open access publishing is not without costs. Innovation and Education therefore levies an article-processing charge of £785.00/$1230.00/€1000.00 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.

BMC 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.

Throughout the year 2020, publication costs for Innovation and Education are covered by KNUE - Korea National University of Education so authors do not need to pay an article-processing charge. In order to get the article processing charge (APC) paid via KNUE, authors need to contact before submitting their manuscripts.
