APC Waiver Program for SSPH+ Affiliates

In December 2023, the SSPH+ Affiliate APC Waiver Program was extended until the end of 2024. IJPH and PHR manuscripts with successful peer-review and with at least one author affiliated with SSPH+ (at time of submission) will be published free of charge (no APC) .


  • Manuscripts must be submitted by 31.12.2024
  • At least one author is an SSPH+ Faculty member or is part of the research group or department of an SSPH+ Faculty member (i.e., same primary affiliation)
  • To qualify for this SSPH+ APC waiver program, review articles (all forms, including policy briefs) must be submitted to Public Health Reviews (PHR) and original articles to International Journal of Public Health (IJPH).


Please submit an APC Support Application form to apply for the APC Waiver Program for SSPH+ Affiliates.

This application must include the name and affiliation of the author expected to qualify for the waiver.

If the qualifying co-author is not listed as SSPH+ Faculty member, please mention the SSPH+ Faculty member with whom the co-author is associated (e.g. same research group or department, etc.).

The applicant will be informed in due course whether the manuscript will receive the waiver, if accepted for publication after peer review.
