Fees and funding
Open access publishing is not without costs. DARU Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences therefore levies an article-processing charge of €850 for each article accepted for publication. The journal is supported by Tehran University of Medical Sciences (TUMS).
If the corresponding author's institution participates in our open access membership program, some or all of the publication cost may be covered (more details available on the membership page). We routinely waive charges for authors from low-income countries. For other countries, article-processing charge waivers or discounts are granted on a case-by-case basis to authors with insufficient funds. Authors can request a waiver or discount during the submission process. For further details, see our article-processing charge page.
BioMed Central provides a free open access funding support service to help authors discover and apply for article processing charge funding. Visit our OA funding and policy support page to view our list of research funders and institutions that provide funding for APCs, and to learn more about our email support service.
Note for Iran-based authors
For authors based in Iran a discounted APC of €700 and a special mechanism for covering the APC apply. 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.
