About Author Fees


If your manuscript is accepted for publication in the Journal of Applied Clinical Medical Physics, you will be asked to pay an Article Processing Charge (APC). The Article Processing Charge applies for all articles submitted after midnight, November 1, 2015, US Pacific Time. The authors understand that even if the article is accepted it will not be published unless this charge is paid.

When will the APC be charged?


The APC applies only to articles that are accepted for publication. Upon acceptance, you will be contacted by the publisher with a link to the Author Services payment system. The APC must be paid for your article to be published online.

Which payment methods are accepted?


When submitting an article to a Wiley Open Access journal, the submitting author must agree to pay the publication charge minus any eligible discount (or request a waiver). After acceptance the article will enter the production cycle and the author will be asked to pay the publication charge for the journal minus any eligible discount. When final formatting corrections are made and the author approves their article for publication, payment of the publication charge must be received before the article will be published online.

Payment can be made by any of the following methods:
Credit card payment can be made online using a secure payment form.
Cheque, purchase order, or institutional invoice (payment is due within 30 days).
Prompt payment is advised, as the article will not be published until payment is received.

Does the APC apply to all articles?


The APC applies to all manuscripts submitted under the following sections; Review Articles, Radiation Oncology Physics, Medical Imaging, Radiation Measurements, Radiation Protection & Regulation, Non-ionizing Topics, Management and Profession, Education, Other Topics and Technical Notes.
