Authors of study protocols in Systematic Reviews are now entitled to a 20% discount on the article processing charge (APC) for publication of the results of the same systematic review in the journal.
Publication – and public registration in PROSPERO – of information about proposed or ongoing systematic reviews is increasingly common, and Systematic Reviews regularly publishes protocols.
To encourage authors to report the results of their research regardless of the outcome – whether positive, negative or no difference – we offer an APC discount on publication in a number of journals.
Financial incentives for transparent reporting of all components of a research project are one part of BioMed Central’s Threaded Publications initiative. See our protocol publication resources, APC FAQs and Threaded Publications blog for more information.
