Page charges

The page charges are $55 for each of the first 6 printed pages and then $85 for each subsequent printed page. The Editors, at their discretion, may waive these charges. Invited articles, correspondence, and articles published only in the electronic edition are exempt from page charges.

Color charges

Authors are charged for the print reproduction of color figures, except for Invited Articles. The cost is $550/£353/€454 per page for the first printed page and then $440/£283/€363 for each subsequent printed page. Authors should state in their cover letter whether they will bear the cost of reproducing their color figures or whether they prefer to have them published in black and white at no additional cost.

Open Access option for authors

Clinical Infectious Diseases authors have the option to publish their paper under the Oxford Open initiative; whereby, for a charge, their paper will be made freely available online immediately upon publication. After your manuscript is accepted the corresponding author will be required to accept a mandatory license to publish agreement. As part of the licensing process you will be asked to indicate whether or not you wish to pay for open access. If you do not select the open access option, your paper will be published with standard subscription-based access and you will not be charged.
