Note: These fees include up to 1 GB of data. For 1-5 GB of data with an article, we will need to charge an additional US $200 to cover the storage costs involved. Beyond 5 GB of data, we ask you to contact us to discuss the costs.
Pre-pay membership packages are also available for institutions which include various levels of discount on the individual article fees listed above – for enquiries, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Revisions, Updates and Follow-upsRevisions and Updates can be made to any article for free. A Follow-up article (when previously agreed with F1000Research) will be charged at 80% of the normal APC for that article type.
Discounts and waivers
Our referees will receive a 50% discount on anything submitted within the ensuing 12 months.
Articles submitted as part of an F1000Research Article Collection will receive a 20% discount for all article types.
Registered users on our core F1000Prime service (i.e. those with personal subscriptions or based at subscribing institutes) will receive a 10% discount.
Charges are payable once the article has been accepted for publishing (i.e. following successful completion of our pre-publication checks). We will consider individual waiver requests on a case-by-case basis in situations where there is a lack of funds. Additionally, we adhere to HINARI/AGORA where authors from more than 90 low-income countries will receive automatic waivers on APCs.
