Open Access Publication: All manuscripts submitted to International Journal of Innovative Research in Medical Science are assumed to be submitted under the Open Access publishing model. In this publishing model, papers are peer-reviewed in the normal way under editorial control. When a paper is accepted for publication the author is issued with an invoice for payment of a publication processing fee. Payment of this charge allows International Journal of Innovative Research in Medical Science to recover its editorial and production costs and create a pool of funds that can be used to provide fee waivers for authors from lesser developed countries (like: Nepal, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, etc).
Published papers appear electronically and are freely available from our website. Authors may also use their published. pdf's for any non-commercial use on their personal or non-commercial institution's website.
Upon acceptance for publication a processing fee will be payable.
NB: Owing to fluctuations in foreign exchange rates fees may occasionally be subject to change without notice.
No CC-BY-NC articles from the Dove Medical Press website may be reproduced, in any media or format, or linked to for any commercial purpose (eg. product support, etc.) without the prior written consent of International Journal of Innovative Research in Medical Science and payment to IJIRMS of an appropriate fee.
Authors living in developing countries: We encourage our authors to publish their papers with us and don’t wish the cost of publication processing fees to be an insurmountable barrier especially to authors from the low and lower middle income countries. A range of discounts or waivers are offered to authors who are unable to pay our publication processing fees. We use the World Bank Country Classification table to identify:
- Your name and institution with full address details
- Reason for applying for a waiver
- Title of your paper
- Paper ID
- Country of residence of any co-authors.
If you have already accepted a discounted price offered to you at the time of submission please be aware that this is the maximum discount and we are unable to help you further.
Authors who receive the support of, or are employed by, a commercial organization (e.g. pharmaceutical company) will not be liable to receive this discounted price. They will be asked to pay the full advertised price in effect at the time of submission.
