Article Processing Charges
Population Medicine has been partially funded through the Smart Specialisation Strategy of Crete (S3), an innovation policy concept to support regional prioritization in innovative sectors, fields or technologies. The European Commission introduced the S3 concept in the EU Cohesion Policy 2014-2020 as an ‘ex-ante conditionality’ for European regions to obtain funding for research and innovation from the European Regional Development Fund. Hence, in Population Medicine there are no Article Processing Charges (APC) or any related subscription costs, when authors are from Academia/Non Governmental Organisations. For manuscripts submitted by authors affiliated with an industry (i.e. Pharmaceutical industry) an APC of 1950 Euro (plus VAT where applicable) is levied.
In addition, if a commercial license is applied (CC BY 4.0 or CC BY-ND 4.0), then a commercial license charge of 1000 E (plus VAT where applicable) is levied.
