Gain maximum impact with open access, without giving up on revenue

We provide you with a fully open access service to ensure the widest possible dissemination and impact of your publications, while also offering you a range of ways to continue to earn vital revenue from its operation. As our base APC is set at a highly cost-efficient £250 (€300/$400), societies can afford to charge a fee on top of this to generate income, while still remaining price competitive. Even with a £750 additional fee for example, a society could easily still be charging around half the standard APC of its competitors, but still be bringing in sufficient income to sustain its operations.

Opening up valuable research data and software for reuse

International Medical Publisher Journals provide a fully open way to discover research resources that are spread across multiple locations and usually hard to find. Our meta papers reward authors for openly archiving their research datasets, software and reports, through citation and impact tracking. By doing so they also enable new and more efficient research, new collaborations, and use by the public (e.g. for teaching and journalism).

 

A fully rebranded, sustainable and professional publishing service

STM publishers play an essential role in academic publishing, having a closer relationship with researchers and a better understanding of their needs, which is not always the case with other publishers. Many universities and their libraries are considering starting new presses in response to this demand, but in difficult economic times many established university presses are also being forced to close down due to funding difficulties. We take care of the technical and production side of things, freeing you to focus on what you do best – supporting your researchers and helping them to disseminate their work as widely as possible, with the status and prestige of your own institutional imprint. By leveraging the scalability and existing operations of the International Medical Publisher platform, this is a fully sustainable and highly affordable option that enables universities to take back control of publishing. To find out more about running a press at your university with International Medical Publisher, please contact our team.

We would like to invite you to consider publishing a new book us in Open Access model. In this model, the book is available online to all interested readers, who do not have to pay for accessing its contents. Open access brings a wider audience and broader readership. It can also help promote printed copies of the work.

  • English language copy-editing by native English speaking specialists in the field (we accept also manuscripts in Spanish)
  • professional composition of the manuscript in PDF format

As a rule, open access books are published in so-called author-pays model, which means that the author (or rather his or her affiliate institution or another sponsor) of the book manuscript accepted for publication pays a Book Processing Charge, which covers the production and marketing costs. 

If you prefer self-publishing your book, taking care of copyediting tasks, we are happy to publish your book (with ISBN and full distribution) at no cost.
