Our peer reviewed open access journal, npj Primary Care Respiratory Medicine, is published by Springer Nature, and co-owned by the publisher and our UK group, PCRS-UK.    



Waivers and discounts for world’s lowest income countries as defined by the World Bank

The journal offers article processing charge (APC) waivers and discounts for papers whose corresponding authors are based in the world’s lowest income countries as defined by the World Bank. See https://www.springernature.com/gp/open-research/policies/journal-policies/apc-waiver-countries

 

Other waiver requests

Requests from other authors for APC waivers will be considered on a case-by-case basis, and may be granted in cases of financial need.  All applications for discretionary APC waivers should be made prior to or at the point of manuscript submission; requests made during the review process or after acceptance will not be considered.

50% discount for IPCRG authors

If you do not qualify for a waiver, “IPCRG authors” may be eligible for a 50% discount on all article types.  We define this as follows: The discount is available to any corresponding author who, in the last three years, has presented an abstract or poster at an IPCRG conference or at a scientific meeting of an IPCRG member organisation.*   It is not available for manuscripts funded by the pharmaceutical industry. The discount is also available if IPCRG has supported (support might include inspiration, advice, mentoring or review, not just funding) a research or education programme submitted for publication and IPCRG is acknowledged as follows "The International Primary Care Respiratory Group (IPCRG) has facilitated the publication of this paper."
