Article Processing Charges are levied after article acceptance prior to publication. Our goal is to ensure articles are published as quickly as possible once they are accepted by the handling editor, subject to appropriate quality controls, and widely disseminated. These charges are to cover Review, Proof reading, Imaging, publishing in various formats, promoting the articles published and other process involved in publishing a paper. Hence, the authors are required to pay the charges for processing their articles. However, the authors are required to make payment only after their manuscript has been accepted for publication.
The publication charges for Surgical Research and Practice are USD 1500.
The above mentioned article processing fee may vary based on the extensive editing, colored effects, complex equations, lengthy manuscript, etc.
