Article Publication Charge (APC)

The payment of an Article Publication Charge is due as soon as the manuscript is accepted. Your article's APC may vary depending on society membership or article type, and it may be covered by the Corresponding Author’s institution or funder through an agreement with Codon.

Codon Publications offers waivers and discounts to corresponding authors based in low- and lower middle-income countries and locations. To ensure that editorial decisions are never influenced by ability to pay. Editors of open access journals are not involved in correspondence with authors regarding payment of Article Publication Charges (APCs). The waiver/discount system will be managed by administrative staff not involved in decisions regarding article acceptance.
