(information updated on 6 December)
Japan Surgical Society supports the cost of Article processing charge (APC) for the papers submitted by members of the society. To receive this benefit author's membership status must be verified at the time of editorial acceptance of their manuscript.
As from 8 December 2022, due to system change, authors are no longer requested to submit institution code to request discount of Article Processing Charge (APC) for society members during the process of new manuscript submission. Instead, members are able to request APC coverage at editorial acceptance.
