Membership

BMC and SpringerOpen provide a membership program for institutions to support researchers who publish in our journals. The membership is designed to provide billing support for article-processing charges while allowing institutions to effectively manage their open access output. Contact us to learn more.

The membership is applicable to BMC and SpringerOpen journals only, and does not apply to any Nature Research, Palgrave, or Springer Nature hybrid open access (Open Choice) journals.

If you are a member and would like support with your account, please contact membership@biomedcentral.com.

If your institution is not currently a member, visit our OA funding and policy support page to learn more about APC funding options and our support service for authors.
