Revisions, Updates and Follow-ups

Revisions and Updates are new versions of a published article and can be made to any article without extra charge.

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.

F1000Posters depositors will receive a 50% 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 full or partial waiver requests on a case-by-case basis in situations where there is a lack of funds. Additionally, we adhere to HINARI/AGORA to give full or partial waivers to authors from low-income countries.
