The publication costs for the articles published in Critical Ultrasound Journal are partially sponsored by the World Interactive Network Focused on Critical UltraSound (WINFOCUS), so Society members do not need to pay the article processing charge following acceptance of their manuscript. The Editorial Board acts independently of the sponsoring support. Each submitted article undergoes peer review following the common established editorial and ethical standards in publishing.
SpringerOpen is Springer’s new suite of open access journals which will cover all disciplines. SpringerOpen journals are fully and immediately open access and will publish articles under the Creative Commons Attribution license. This makes it easy for authors to fully comply with open access mandates and retain copyright. SpringerOpen journals combine open access and our expertise in delivering high-quality and rapid publications, from online submission systems and in-depth peer review to an efficient, author-friendly production process.
If you have no funds to cover the Article Processing Charge (APC) and would like to apply for a waiver of the APC, please contact the Editor-in-Chief.
