CPC-EM Article Processing Fee

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 member of a WestJEM department subscription, the APF can be waived (up to 2 waivers per subscription year). Any additional CPC-EM articles from a subscribing department will receive 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 info@cpcem.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 a 50% discount on the article processing fee for articles in which the first author is paying independently and comes from a low income or lower middle income countries.

Our Philosophy

Emergency Medicine is a specialty which closely reflects societal challenges and consequences of public policy decisions. The emergency department specifically deals with social injustice, health and economic disparities, violence, substance abuse, and disaster preparedness and response. This journal focuses on how emergency care affects the health of the community and population, and conversely, how these societal challenges affect the composition of the patient population who seek care in the emergency department. The development of better systems to provide emergency care, including technology solutions, is critical to enhancing population health.
