Article Processing Charges
Article Processing Charge (APC):

Payment of the APC fee (directly to the publisher) by the author or a funding body is not required until AFTER the manuscript has gone through the full double-blind peer review process and the Editor(s)-in-Chief at his/her/their full discretion has/have decided to accept the manuscript based on the results of the double-blind peer review process. 

What Does IGI Global's Open Access APC Cover?

In the traditional subscription-based model, the cost to the publisher to produce each article is covered by the revenue generated by journal subscriptions. Under OA, all the articles are published under a Creative Commons (CC BY) license; therefore, the authors or funding body will pay a one-time article processing charge (APC) to offset the costs of all of the activities associated with the publication of the article manuscript, including:

  • Digital tools used to support the manuscript management and review process
  • Typesetting, formatting and layout
  • Online hosting
  • Submission of the journal's content to numerous abstracts, directories, and indexes
  • Third-party software (e.g. plagiarism checks)
  • Editorial support which includes manuscript tracking, communications, submission guideline checks, and communications with authors and reviewers
  • All promotional support and activities which include metadata distribution, press releases, promotional communications, web content, ads, fliers, brochures, postcards, etc. for the journal and its published contents
  • The fact that all published articles will be freely accessible and able to be posted and disseminated widely by
    the authors
  • Professional line-by-line English language copy editing and proofreading*

*This service is only performed on article manuscripts with fully paid (not discounted or waived) APC fees.

Reviews & Statements

Applying computer science in medicine is challenging because of the unstructured nature of medical information. The International Jouranl of Healthcare Information Systems and Informatics (IJHISI) meets the needs of physicians and engineers bridging the gap in scientific information exchange.

– Thomas Deserno (Lehmann), Aachen University of Technology (RWTH), Germany

The health informatics initiative encompasses huge interests and investments in informatics and information systems. While there are many information sources covering healthcare issue in IT, IJHISI is timely and topical.

– Dan Zhu, Iowa State University, USA

There is ever-increasing use of information systems in healthcare, and with it growing realisation that the healthcare community need to communicate with the systems community. The role of IJHISI is to allow those working in health information systems to publish and debate their work in an environment that supports quality and rigour, without being secondary to a clinical research agenda. IJHISI allows international communication in a field where lessons can and do need to be learned from very different healthcare environments.
