Price Policy

The Journal of Medicine and Palliative Care is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal that has published three issues (April, August, and December) per year periodically and is indexed in international indices. The journal's expenses were covered by resources and donations. Owing to the increasing publication costs with the increase in the number of articles, the article processing fee will be requested from the authors, regardless of rejection or acceptance, who submit articles to evaluate the articles as soon as possible and to provide better consultancy and editing services. The article submission fee, which is not subject to the condition of acceptance or rejection, is requested after the compliance of the article with the journal scope is checked.

Manuscript submission/evaluation fee: Article submission payment for original, review and case report articles is 330 USD (US Dollars) or 10800 TL (Turkish Liras).

Fast-track process: Editorial preliminary review, domain check, blind review by at least two reviewers and editorial decision will be finalized within a maximum of 30 business days. The cost of this transaction is 590 USD (US Dollars) or 19200 TL (Turkish Liras).

No fee will be taken for short communication, invited review, technical report, and letter to the editor articles.

Choosing the fast track/evaluation process does not increase the chances of the article being accepted. If the article is rejected as a result of the reviewer evaluation, no refund will be made.

Use of the Submission Fee in the Journal: Taxes are given for the fee arrangement in return for the fees deposited in the journal. These fees are used to develop journals. Professional secretarial, typesetting, design, layout, and sometimes English language support services are provided. In addition, sometimes a fee is paid for scanning in the indexes, and revenues are used for this fee.
