Publication charges


Endocrine Connections is an open-access publication. Expenses such as peer review, journal production, online hosting and archiving are covered by an Article Publishing Charge (APC). The APC only becomes payable upon acceptance of a manuscript and needs to be paid for an article to proceed to publication. All articles will be published under the CC-BY Open Access Licence unless otherwise requested.

The APC for manuscripts is £2100 (as of 1 Jan 2024)*.

For more information about open access, including funder requirements and our developing country waiver programme, please visit our open-access policy page.
