Publication charges

BMJ journals levy an Article Processing Charge (APC) in order to make your work open access. APCs vary by journal so please refer to the individual journal website for more details. 


Publish in The BMJ

The BMJ, our flagship journal, charges an APC on acceptance of your research paper. Visit The BMJ‘s open access page for more information. 


Publish in one of our specialty journals

We publish over 60 medical and allied health journals. You can publish in one of our fully open access journals or you can choose an open access option in one of our transformative or hybrid journals. Please visit the individual’s journal website to find out its APC.
