Key information

  • Manuscripts will be accepted until 15th December 2023, and should be submitted on the website and follow the journal guidelines (see instructions for authors for general guidance)
  • Papers will be continuously published in Early View on acceptance.
  • Papers from low- or middle-income countries (where the first author resides in an LMIC) will have all publishing fees waived.
  • Requests for fee reductions from early career researchers/students from any country are also considered.
  • The article processing charge is US $750 for 4,000 word manuscripts (excluding references, tables and figures) for authors from high-income countries. Papers exceeding this word limit will be considered on a case by case basis, with particular consideration paid to qualitative research. An additional cost of $150 per additional 500 words may otherwise apply, subject to Editorial discretion.
