Journal for ImmunoTherapy of Cancer

Fees and funding

Article-processing charges

Open access publishing is not without costs. Journal for ImmunoTherapy of Cancer therefore levies an article-processing charge of £1540/$2410/€1965 for each article accepted for publication. We routinely waive charges for authors from low-income countries. For other countries, article-processing charge waivers or discounts are granted on a case-by-case basis to authors with insufficient funds. Authors can request a waiver or discount during the submission process. For further details, see our article-processing charge page.

Free Publication for Society Members

As a way to say thank you to the dedicated Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) members who tirelessly work to advance the science and ultimately to improve the lives of patients with cancer, the Society is pleased to offer its members waived article processing charges for manuscripts published in JITC.
