Page charges. Authors are responsible for paying page charges based on the number of printed pages in the Journal once their article has been accepted and galley proofs are received. The fee is $150 per page for manuscripts submitted by a Corresponding Author who is a member of the ASTMH and $200 per page for non-ASTMH members. Charges for printed color figures are $500 per page of color. There is no charge for figures that are in color only online. Supplemental data such as additional tables and figures can be included in the online version of a paper and referenced in the print version. Page charges are due upon receipt of galley proofs. The corresponding author will receive an email with a link to galley proofs a few weeks after manuscript acceptance. A separate email with a link to an invoice will be sent; at that time authors can choose if they want to pay the regular page charge fees listed above or the open access fee of $2,500. There are no page charges for Letters to the Editor, Book Reviews, or Stories From the Field.
Page charge waivers. Manuscripts with only authors from low- and low-middle income countries and with no sources of support for page charges may qualify for a partial or full waiver of charges. Please appreciate that funds for waivers are limited. We do not grant waivers until a paper is accepted. To be considered for a full or partial waiver of charges, please email the Managing Editor after your paper has been accepted with the manuscript number and explain the reason for the waiver request. Manuscripts with co-authors from high income countries as designated by the World Bank will not be eligible for a waiver unless there are extenuating circmstances; please explain these in your waiver request.
