IMPORTANT Information for Submitting Authors
The CSOHNS has made a change to the coverage of the article publication charge (APC) for its members. As of November 15, 2020, all members will be responsible for 50% of the APC at the Society’s discounted rate.This change is necessary to help preserve the Journal’s budget for those original research articles and reviews submitted by CSOHNS members. As previously noted, no other type of article will be covered. (e.g. case reports)
For 2021, that fee will be $772 USD. The CSOHNS will continue to support the Journal by matching that amount for published articles. Members will be billed by the CSOHNS in equivalent Canadian dollars, only after a manuscript has been published. The article submission process remains unchanged and still requires the input of the institutional membership code at the time of submission. There is no other method for receiving this discount.
Only CSOHNS active members in good standing for 3-years who are either the first or senior author on a submission qualify to have the 50% subsidy. The membership code can be retrieved by contacting the CSOHNS office at [email protected] .
