Article-processing charges

Tehran University of Medical Sciences support DARU Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences financially, resulting in a reduction in the article-processing charge (APC) that is payable upon editorial acceptance of an article. For articles submitted after 30 March 2015, the author-payable share of the APC is €600. Further details on the APC are available here.

Note for Iran-based authors

For authors based in Iran there is a special mechanism for covering the article-processing charge. Iran-based authors should enter the code DARU01 during the article submission process. If this code is used, Iran-based authors do not pay an APC to the publisher; instead, TUMS arranges payments with the publisher and will invoice the APC, payable in Iranian Rials, to the authors.
