Article Publication Charges

All articles published by the Journal of Cachexia, Sarcopenia and Muscle are fully open access: freely available to read, download and share upon publication. The pay-to-publish model operated by JCSM, offering the 'gold route' to open access, is one we believe offers the most rapid and sustainable way to share publications that meets the requirements of funding bodies and the scientific community. JCSM therefore charges a 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.
