To accelerate the impact of the potential research findings, the Journal of Obesity and Chronic Diseases (JOCD) adopts open access model to provide immediate, worldwide, barrier-free access to all articles published. To make this happen and to offset operational and technical expenses—including those for online hosting, developing and maintenance of electronic tools, devices, and systems for peer review management and journal production, archiving and securing inclusion in indexing databases—the article publication costs will be in the form of an Article processing charge (APC) of $600. However, JOCD believes that lack of funds should not be a barrier to open access publication and will consider discount or waiver to the APC on a case-by-case basis.
Original Research Article and Clinical case report: 600 USD
Other Articles (Reviews, Short Communications, etc.): 550 USD
There are no publication charges for Editorials and Letters to the Editor.
*APC may vary by journal and is payable for articles upon acceptance.
