Publication Fee / Open Access Option


Publication Fee

Papers submitted for publication to the Journal of Parkinson’s Disease are subject to a publication charge. The publication fee for the Journal of Parkinson’s Disease is currently US$600/€530 (excl. VAT if applicable), and is applied to Research Report, Review, Hypothesis or Short Communication/Case Report articles.

Authors from countries with low-income economies may be eligible for a waiver of the publication fee. Fees are waived on a case-by-case basis. Authors should notify the journal of their inability to pay the publication fee upon submission of the article. Invited articles are excluded from paying a publication fee.

When an article is accepted for publication in the journal, the acceptance letter to the corresponding author will include a link to the journal’s online payment form. Authors can pay the fee by credit card or through bank transfer. After payment of the publication fee, the paper will be taken into production by the IOS Press production office. Payment of the publication fee must be received before an article is published in the journal.


Open Access option

The Journal of Parkinson’s Disease offers authors the option to make their article freely available on the Publisher's website. For an additional charge of US$1450/€1250, your article (including pre-publication) will be freely accessible within 3 days of receipt of agreement.

To order the Open Access option the corresponding author can follow the link in the decision letter to the online order form.

It is possible to make your article Open Access at a later stage, even after the final publication. In this case, please contact to make the arrangement and be sure to include the article reference number in your message. The price remains the same.
