When publishing your article, charges may apply for the following:


  • Open access – our gold open access journals charge an article processing charge (APC), the amount is dependent on the journal. Discounts may be available for certain article types, reviewers and Hinari authors. For hybrid journals, no open access discounts are provided. For more information on our open access options, take a look at the fees and waivers page.
  • Colour – some journals will charge a fee to include colour figures in print publications. Online-only colour figures incur no cost. For a list of colour charges applicable per journal, please see the relevant journal homepage.
