The Journal of Emerging Investigators is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. We operate through submission fees, individual contributions, grants, corporate support. The submission fee goes directly to pay the cost of operating our submission platform. This includes managing your manuscript, providing a DOI number (upon publishing) and storing your submission in our online management system. As an aide to help offset the cost of submissions, we have implemented a $35 per submission fee. This fee is paid once per manuscript submitted. The fee does not guarantee publishing. Reaching the stage of a published article is dependent on students and mentors following our Submission Guide and participating in the peer review and publishing process. There are no refunds.
