Publication Fees and Choices
Our simple publication fees and choices ensure that the Rockefeller University Press is able to offer a home to all manuscripts that meet the criteria of novelty, significance, and scientific rigor. Our standard flat fee includes fast online publication, deposit in PubMed Central (PMC), archive in LOCKSS/CLOCKSS and Portico, and perpetual open access 6 months after publication. Authors may also elect an Immediate Open Access option.
Authors may select from the following:
$2,000 - flat fee includes all publication charges and open access 6 months after publication under CC-BY-NC-SA license.
$5,000 - Immediate Open Access flat fee includes all publication charges and open access upon publication under CC-BY license. Articles are released on PMC upon issue publication.
Wellcome or COAF funding recipients please note: this option must be chosen if you intend to have Wellcome/COAF cover your open access fees.
Authors will be invoiced for publication or open access fees after publication of their article. Open access is verified prior to invoicing. RUP is unable to process cancellations, refunds, or returns of open-access fees after publication.
Inability to pay the $2,000 fee will not affect the publication of your manuscript. If you are experiencing financial hardship please contact us for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org or (212) 327-7938.
Invited commentary and reviews are published immediately open access at no charge.
