Open access publishing does have its costs. Since Africa-CDC does not have subscription charges for its research content it can defray publishing costs from the Article Processing Charges. This is because Africa-CDC believes that the interests of the scientific community can best be served by an immediate, worldwide, unlimited, open access to the full text of research articles. Information regarding authors’ payment are not made available to editors and reviewers ensuring that they cannot be influenced in their selection of papers for publication by payment conditions or limitations.

The Article Processing Charge for publication in this journal is EUR 400,00 for papers of Authors from developed countries; EUR 200,00 per article, for papers of Authors from the United Nations list of Least Developed Countries.

Please note that our fees do not include taxes (VAT):

VAT shall be levied on natural persons or corporate bodies that automatically, habitually, or occasionally carry out taxable transactions consisting of provisions of services or sales of goods.

The total VAT in Cameroon is 19.25%. Exports are zero rated. The VAT paid upstream is recoverable, except where otherwise stated.

Note that VAT is invoiced only by natural and legal persons whose turnover (taxes excluded) is equal to or above XAF 50 million and who are under the tax regime of actual earnings.
