Publication Fee

Article Processing Charges

Journal of Clinical and Experimental Medicine is an Open Access journal accessible for free on the Internet. At Greysh Limited Publishing (Greysh), we guarantee that no university library or individual reader will ever have to buy a subscription or pay any pay-per-view fees to access articles in the electronic version of the journal. There is hence no revenue at Greysh neither from the sale of subscriptions to the electronic version of the journal nor from pay-per-view fees. Yet, the online publication process does involve costs including those pertaining to setup and maintenance of the publication infrastructure, routine operation of the journal, processing of manuscripts through peer-reviews, editing, publishing, maintaining the scholarly record, and archiving. To cover these costs, the journal depends on Article Process Charges (henceforth: APC), also called Publication Fees. APC are due when a manuscript has been accepted for publication.

Greysh does not request Article Submission Charges, also called Submission Fees. These are due at the time of submission of the manuscript. Nor does Greysh charge per page or for color figures or for any other items for which other publishers are known to charge.

Please note that Greysh's regular APC are well below average. All the while, Greysh never ceases to seek to improve the quality guaranteed to its authors and its readers in all kinds of ways, including 1) generating article level metrics, 2) generating journal metrics, e.g., by calculating a 2-year Google-based Journal Impact Factor (2-GJIF), and 3) archiving all articles at Portico. Authors should also keep in mind the cost effectiveness, or value for money, of publishing Open Access. Greysh thinks it would score well on cost effectiveness. But more research needs to be done on the matter.

Sources for Article Processing Charges (APC)

Authors of an article are responsible for arranging the payment of APC. Still, that typically does not mean that authors end up paying for the publication of the article. The cost of APC is very often assumed either by the organization funding the research published in the article, or by an Open Access Publishing Fund, or by the institution at which the author is employed.

Research funded by an agency that has an Open Access mandate will most probably cover APC by the agency. For a database of Open Access mandates, please visit:

Fair Dealing - Authors and Publisher

When an author submits a manuscript for review at one of Greysh's journals, the submitted manuscript should not have been previously published in any form and must not be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. The manuscript should also not be submitted to any other journal during the review process at Greysh. In case the review process at Greysh takes much longer than stated and the author wishes to end the review process at Greysh, he/she should get in contact with the Editorial Assistant of the journal at Greysh and come to an agreement suitable for both sides after looking at the stage of the manuscript in the review process.

With the APC specified above, the author is given an indication what the APC will be. Greysh is charging Publication Fees (APC) but not Submission Fees. This is to the benefit to authors because payments are only due once the author knows the manuscript is accepted. Greysh with editors and reviewers puts much effort in dealing with the manuscript and expects the authors to stick to the common plan of publishing the paper which is linked to payments of APC as given above at the end of the review process. The author is not legally bound at this time, but it would be seen as a strong breach of academic conduct to back off from the publication process. Once the manuscript is accepted for publication, Greysh will issue an invoice in the Paper Submission and Manuscript Tracking System. This is Greysh's legal offer and will state the regular APC of the journal. The Corresponding Author is expected to arrange payments of the amount stated at this time.

Refund Policy

Once an article has been accepted for publication, any Article Processing Charges on the article become due. The submitting author accepts responsibility for the Article Processing Charges, and Greysh Limited Publishing will not issue refunds of any kind except those payments made by mistake or in excess of the amount required.
