Open Access

Virologica Sinica has switched to an open access (OA) journal since 2022, for a faster publishing, greater visibility, and wider connection. That means from 2022 each article in Virologica Sinica is published open access, and the article is universally and freely accessible via the internet in perpetuity, in an easily readable format immediately after publication.

Article publishing charge (APC)
Open access incurs an article publishing charge (APC) which needs to be paid by the authors or on their behalf e.g. by their research funder or institution. The APC fee is CNY ¥9000 (or USD $1500, or EUR €1300), plus VAT for the submissions since 1st January 2022.
