About BMC and open access publishing


All articles published in BMC’s independent journals are open access. This means:

  • Articles are universally and freely accessible upon publication (after peer review and acceptance by the Editors)
  • Articles are immediately deposited and permanently archived in PubMed Central and other major indices
  • Authors retain copyright of their research articles
  • Articles are compliant with an increasing number of funding agency policies promoting open access like the U.S. National Institutes of Health, The Wellcome Trust, and RCUK

A standard article-processing charge (APC) is levied on all articles that are accepted for publication. The APC is a flat charge (currently €1,745) and no additional costs are incurred. The APC covers the costs of peer reviewing, editing, publishing, maintaining and archiving research articles.

BMC aims to ensure that a lack of funds is not an obstacle to publishing:

  • BMC operates an institutional membership arrangement where authors from participating institutions can have the APCs covered; we also offer guidance on securing APC funding
  • In cases where neither the authors nor their institution or funder are able to pay the APC, a discount or waiver may be granted on a case by case basis.
  • Authors from up 80 lower income countries qualify for automatic discounts or waivers
