Article Processing Charges

The journal Health Data Science is an Open Access journal supported by article processing charges (APCs). There are no submission charges.

From 2020 through 2024, all APCs will be covered by Peking University. Authors whose work is accepted for publication in Health Data Science before January 1, 2025 will therefore not be responsible for paying APCs.

Beginning in 2025, the Science Partner Journals (SPJ) Program will offer full APC waivers to authors in the developing world (Hinari A & B countries). Additionally, full or partial waivers may be available to those experiencing financial hardships. Waivers may be requested at any point in the editorial workflow (pre-submission to acceptance) but are not granted until acceptance. Contact the Science Partner Journals (SPJ) Program business office to inquire about waivers.
