Publication Fee for Macedonian Journal of Medical Sciences (MJMS)

To provide open access, MJMS use a business model in which our expenses — including those of journal production, and of online hosting and archiving — are recovered in part by charging a publication fee to the authors or research sponsors for each article they publish. Authors who are affiliated with one of our Institutional Members (Sponsors) are eligible for a discount on this fee.

Editors and reviewers have no access to author payment information, and hence inability to pay will not influence the decision to publish a paper. After the article acceptance the authors are obliged to make a publication fee of 200 Euros (BEN) to MJMS Editorial office. Once the receipt has been received the article will be published in the MJMS. Macedonian citizens should pay in MKD denars equivalent to 200 EUR.

As our publishing operation grows MJMS relies less on philanthropic support and more on our revenue from publication fees, advertising, sponsorship and membership programs. The challenge for any organization like MJMS is to ensure that our income from this variety of revenue streams is sufficient to cover our costs, and that we are steadily strengthening our financial independence. We have the mechanisms in place to ensure this balance, and are keeping all aspects of our business under regular review.

Why should you have to pay to publish your paper?
It costs money to produce a peer-reviewed, edited, and formatted article that is ready for online publication, and to host it on a server that is accessible around the clock. Prior to that, a public or private funding agency has already paid a great deal more money for the research to be undertaken in the interest of the public. This real cost of "producing" a paper can be calculated by dividing your laboratory's annual budget by the number of papers published. We ask that—as a small part of the cost of doing the research—the author, institution, or funding agency pays a fee, to help cover the actual cost of the essential final step, the publication. (As it stands, authors now often pay for publication in the form of page or color charges.) Many funding agencies now support this view.

What does MJMS deliver for the publication fee?
Above all, MJMS deliver OA. For you as an author, that means your work will have maximum impact. Anyone with an interest in your work will be able to find it, read it, download it, redistribute it, translate it, and so on. There is growing evidence, that OA increases the usage and citation of published work. But it doesn't end there. In addition:

  • Authors have unlimited space to tell their story - there is no restriction on the numbers of pages, figures, tables etc.

  • Authors retain their copyright and the right to be cited as the originators of their work.

  • Authors receive one printed issue of the MJMS.

  • MJMS provide added value content plus summaries that increase understanding of your work.

  • MJMS deposits published papers immediately into DOI, Index Copernicus, EBSCO, and CABI.

What if you can't afford the publication fee?
MJMS is committed to ensuring that our fee is never a barrier to publication and so we offer a waiver to any authors who do not have access to funds to cover our publication fees. Editors and reviewers have no access to author payment information, to ensure that the ability to pay never influences a publishing decision.
