GMPC Open Access Policy

The GMPC vision is to publish high-quality journals, conference proceedings, and books in different aspects of life sciences to improve knowledge dissemination. GMPC believes that the sustainable open access model will broaden the dissemination and maximize the benefits of research by making research free to access to everyone globally. Therefore, GMPC publishes open access research articles. All research articles will be immediately freely available to read, download, and share for everyone worldwide. The peer-reviewed accepted research articles and all supplemental materials will be deposited online immediately in a suitable standard electronic format. They will be free, i.e., everyone can freely access and download the full text of all materials published within the GMPC group free of charge.

The re-use of the published material is permitted if the proper citation of the original publication is given. GMPC does not hold the copyright of figures, graphics, photos, or tables. The re-use of such materials will require permission from the original copyright owners (i.e. authors). 

GMPC, as an Open Access publisher, covers the costs for editorial handling and editing of research articles by the authors. Therefore, authors are asked to pay a comparatively low Article Processing Charge (APC) for the accepted articles. The APC is a one-time payment for accepted articles only. Since we do not want to make the payment capability to be a barrier, if you or your institution cannot cover the costs, you may apply for a complete or partial waiver at the time of submission. Please download the APC waiver request from the author resources to explain the reasons for your request and send it to waiver@gmpc-akademie.de.

GMPC group is committed to maintaining the open-access policy permanently, including any changes in ownership in the future.
