Article Processing Charge
Article processing charges (APC) will be charged for accepted manuscripts submitted on or after April 1, 2020. An invoice will be issued to the corresponding author upon acceptance. If the authors do not agree to pay, the Editorial Office may cancel the acceptance of the manuscript. Your prompt payment will make your manuscripts published more quickly and efficiently, and we appreciate it.
The World Journal of Men's Health is an open access journal: authors pay an APC for their accepted articles to be open access online and freely accessible immediately upon publication, under a Creative Commons license.

Also, commission fees paid by the Korean Society for Sexual Medicine and Andrology (Journal, World Journal of Men’s Health) won’t be refunded even if the payment is refunded.
