Clinical Practice and Cases in Emergency Medicine (CPC-EM)
This page allows authors with accepted CPC-EM manuscripts to submit the article processing fee. The fee is only required for accepted manuscripts to CPC-EM. There is no fee for editorials, nor is there a fee to submit an article. The full price APF is listed below:
- CPC-EM Image – Full Price is $500
- CPC-EM Case Report – Full Price is $750
- CPC-EM Case Series – Full Price is $1,000
If the first or last author of the accepted article is a full-time member of a WestJEM department subscription, there is a 20% reduced fee for an accepted article to CPC-EM. Although we encourage department subscriptions for the ability to waive and save on the APF (and to also financially support the journal), the fee can also be discounted if the first or last author is a full voting member of one of our major society sponsors (California ACEP, ACOEP, and Cal/AAEM).* Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
- CPC-EM Image – Discounted Price $400 (rather than $500)
- CPC-EM Case Report – Discounted Price $600 (rather than $750)
- CPC-EM Case Series – Discounted Price $800 (rather than $1000)
Additional benefits of becoming a faculty department subscription to WestJEM can be found here.

CPC-EM is able to offer to waive the article processing fee after the article has been accepted for articles in which the first author is paying independently and comes from a low income or lower middle income countries. Waiver requests are assessed on a case-by-case basis. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
