As an open access journal, BMDJ's sustainability depends on charging authors an article processing and publication fee (which is usually paid by the authors' institution or research funder).
No publication fee will be charged for issues published till the end of 2015, i.e. for the duration of the OpenScienceLink project, partially funded by the European Union Seventh Framework Programme.
Authors are requested to provide their paper in a clear, professional English language, formatted in the journal template and according to the designated reference style. When this is not the case, the authors of a paper that has received positive reviews will be asked to pay a fee for proof-reading and/or formatting prior to its publication.
