Article Publication Charges

 All articles published by the JIAS are fully open access: immediately freely available to read, download and share. To cover the cost of publishing, JIAS charges a publication fee. The publication fee applies to all articles irrespective of the article category, with exception of Letters to the Editor, Viewpoints and commissioned Articles.

The publication fee for an article is US$2400. Charges are quoted exclusive of value added tax (VAT).

We offer a complete or partial fee waiver on a case-by-case basis for individual authors or author groups from countries on the Waivers and Discounts List. If the author group includes researchers from universities or institutes in high-income economies, the publication fee will likely not be waived. Authors who receive funding from an agency or institution with a Wiley Open Access Account may be eligible for APC support. Members of the International AIDS Society with a valid membership number receive a 15% discount on the publication fee.

Taxes on publication charges

Authors and Institutions resident in any of the EU countries that participate in VAT that are not registered for VAT will have Value-Added Tax (VAT, at their local relevant rate) to add.

If the Author/Institution is VAT registered, by providing their VAT registration number a tax invoice can be accommodated under the reverse charge. (This is a mechanism where VAT would not need to be added to the payment). The VAT registered customer will account for the VAT when they prepare their VAT return as both an “in” and an “out”, producing a nil effect.
