Fees and funding

Article-processing charges

Open access publishing is not without costs. Biomedical Dermatology therefore levies an article-processing charge 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. 

Members of the Korea Institute of Dermatological Sciences (KIDS) and affiliated societies are eligible for the discounted APC of 1,000 Euro by submission of membership account code during the process of manuscript submission. Please contact society office to obtain the membership account code.

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.
For more information on APCs please see our Journal Pricing FAQs

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.
