Article Processing Charges

Article Processing Charge

All StemJournal content is published open access. Currently, there is an article processing charge (APC) of US$ 350 / € 350 to publish under the CC BY-NC 4.0 license.

To publish under a CC BY 4.0 license, as mandated by certain funding agencies, the fee is US$ 400 / € 400. Invited content is exempt from payment. Please contact the Editorial Office (stemjournal@iospress.com) if you have a waiver request or received a payment request by mistake. Paid fees will not be restituted if articles are withdrawn or need to be retracted after acceptance.

Payment of Open Access Fee

If your manuscript is accepted, you will be directed to complete the Payment Form in which you should choose the preferred method of payment and indicate which open access license you prefer. Upon receipt of your completed form, we will send you the invoice by email. Payment can be made by credit card or bank transfer and should be done as soon as possible to ensure no delay in the publication process.

Waiver Request Option
A waiver request for the publication fee should be submitted before the initial submission of a paper. Please send your title, abstract, keyword list and author listing including affiliations (and, if available, ORCID IDs), to the Editorial Office at stemjournal@iospress.com, along with your motivation for the waiver. Your request will be evaluated by the Editorial Office. Waivers are available for corresponding authors from low-income countries as identified by Research4Life.
