Fees and funding
Open access publishing is not without costs. Journal of Therapeutic Ultrasound therefore levies an article-processing charge of £1370.00/$2145.00/€1745.00 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.
Journal of Therapeutic Ultrasound is the official journal of the International Society for Therapeutic Ultrasound and the Korean Society of Therapeutic Ultrasound.
