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 (see further details below). Invited articles and correspondence are exempt from page charges.

Color Charges

Authors are charged for the print reproduction of color figures. 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 printing their color figures or prefer to have them printed in black and white at no additional cost. There is no cost for color figures online. If authors choose black and white figures in print and color figures online, authors should upload both color and black and white versions of each figure with appropriate legends for each version.

Billing and Waivers

The publisher will bill the author concurrently for page, color, and Open Access charges, as well as for any reprints. Invited Perspectives, Editorials, and Correspondence related to articles recently published in JID will not be subject to page charges.

Authors can pay charges using our Author Services site, which allows for payment online with a credit/debit card, or authors can request an invoice by email or post.

In unusual circumstances, the Editor may waive page charges. Requests for page charge waivers should be made in the author’s cover letter when submitting the manuscript.

Orders from the UK will be subject to the current UK VAT charge. For orders from the rest of the European Union, OUP will assume that the service is provided for business purposes. Authors should provide a VAT number for themselves or their institution, and ensure their account for their own local VAT correctly.

Open Access option for authors

JID authors have the option to publish their article under the Oxford Open initiative
whereby, for a charge, their paper will be made freely available online immediately upon publication. After a manuscript is accepted, the corresponding author will be required to accept a mandatory license to publish agreement. As part of the licensing process, the author will be asked to indicate whether or not he/she wishes to pay for open access; if the open access option is not selected, the article will be published with standard subscription-based access and the author will not be charged.
