Fees and funding
Open access publishing is not without costs. Italian Journal of Pediatrics therefore levies an article-processing charge of £1370/$2145/€1745 for each article accepted for publication. 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.
Members of the Italian Society of Pediatrics (Società Italiana di Pediatria) are entitled to a discount of 37% on the article-processing charge. The required code should be entered during the submission process and society members can obtain this by following this link http://sip.it/varie/soci-sip-sconto-per-litalian-journal-of-pediatrics.
For non-members of the Society, some or all of the publication cost may be covered if the corresponding author's institution participates in our open access membership program (more details available on the membership page).
BioMed Central provides a free open access funding support service to help authors discover and apply for article processing charge funding.
