Open Access


Open Access is a publishing model that provides immediate, subscription-free access to the full text of published articles. Moreover, authors who publish in Open Access journals retain the copyright of their article. All articles published by Population Medicine are made freely and permanently accessible online immediately upon publication. To ensure digital preservation for the future, our electronic publications are archived with Portico, as for all publications of EUEP.

Article Processing Charges
In the Open Access model, publication costs are usually covered by the author’s institution or research funds. These Article Processing Charges (APCs) replace subscription charges and allow the publishers to make the published material freely available to all interested online readers. APCs are levied to cover the cost of providing our quality publishing services. At the time of submission, for complete transparency regarding APCs, authors are mandated to accept the clearly written APCs or state that they have a waiver. Upon acceptance, a pro forma invoice is created, and upon publication, a final invoice is issued. APCs are payable within 30 days of the invoice date.
Population Medicine has been previously 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. From September 2023, articles that are submitted and subsequently accepted for publication will carry an APC of 1750 Euro (exclusive of VAT where applicable), unless one of the below criteria apply:
  • All manuscripts from Low-Income Countries are automatically granted a waiver.
  • Manuscripts from Low Middle-Income Countries and from authors of High-Income Countries who are unable to pay the APC, are evaluated on a case by case basis by the Editor-in-Chief and the Publisher.
  • Editorials and Letters to the Editor do not have any APCs.
