In order to further internationalize our journal, Japan Epidemiological Association (JEA) has decided to move publication of Journal of Epidemiology from J-STAGE to Elsevier in January 2017. Due to this change, article processing charges (APC) will be renewed accordingly. The decision was made at the January 2016 board of directors meeting, and a contract with Elsevier was signed on March 14, 2016. Work is in progress to launch a new online submission system (EVISE) by Elsevier, and to enable preliminary online publication (Articles in Press) of articles which have been accepted for publication in 2017.
The new APC will be applicable to articles submitted from June 1, 2016. The new fees will be as follows.
・Members 70,000 JPY per article; Non-members 120,000 JPY per article.
・Members and non-members alike will be charged 10,000 JPY per page when the article exceeds 8 pages.
・Publication of Letters will cost 10,000 JPY per Letter notwithstanding membership.
・There are no charges for responses to Letters.
