Open Access Policy

Advanced Virology is a fully open access journal. This means it provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.

Contributions appearing in Advanced Virology are made immediately available worldwide under an open-access license (no embargo period); users have free (no price barriers) and unlimited access to the full text of the contributions; and users are free to re-use the published material, without asking prior permission provided that the original article is clearly cited. Open access publication is supported through a comparatively low Article Processing Charge (APC) for accepted articles paid either by the author(s) or their funder, institution or employer.

Important Note: some contributions in Advanced Virology may contain figures, tables or text taken from other publications, for which Kenzym Publishers does not hold the copyright or the right to re-license the published material. Please note that you should inquire with the original copyright holder (usually the original publisher or authors), whether or not this material can be re-used.

Article Processing Charges (APC)

Open access publishing is not without costs. Advanced Virology therefore requires the author(s) or their funder/institution/employer to pay an article-processing charge (APC) of $375.00 for each article accepted for publication, plus VAT or local taxes where applicable.

Special Waiver: To promote authors to publish their research in recently launched Advanced Virology, all submissions made before September 30, 2023, are eligible to receive a special automatic waiver for APCs.

Advanced Virology does not charge any submission fees or extra charges for the length of the contributions. APCs are payable when a manuscript is editorially accepted but before publication. Editorial decisions are kept independent and are not influenced by APC payment conditions or limitations. For more details, please visit the APC policy we follow.

Upon editorial acceptance of an article, the corresponding author will be notified that payment is due and will be guided through the payment procedure. Currently, we accept only Bank Transfers with bank charges to be borne by the payer.
