Submission fee

Submission fee is free for everyone.  


Article Publishing Charge (APC)

Article processing charges (APCs) cover the cost of publication in the journal; managing and resourcing the publishing process, including peer review, copy-editing, typesetting, production and hosting.

Stem Cell Institute, University of Sciences, Viet Nam National University Ho Chi Minh City will cover all but part of the publication fee — the remaining article publication fee will be $150 USD.

Biomedical Research and Therapy therefore levies an article-processing charge of 150 USD for each article accepted for publication, plus VAT or local taxes where applicable. If this paper is accepted for publication, you will be asked to pay an Article Publication Fee to cover publications costs.

What if I can't pay an APC?

Requests for fee waivers will be considered when authors do not have the available funds, but the request must be made at article submission.

It is necessary to apply for waiver during the submission process by inclusion of a request in the online submission form.

What other circumstances might result in an APC being waived?

Waivers are offered by Biomedical Research and Therapy in the event that an accepted paper belongs in any of the following article types:

  • Editorials
  • Invited reviews
  • Perspectives
  • Comments/Replies
  • Corrections, retractions and expressions of editorial concern
  • All accepted manuscripts about COVID-19
