Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The National Institute for Cancer Research of Genoa and the Institute of Clinical and Experimental Oncology of the University of Genoa surveyed the publishers of top-rank medical-scientific journals to gather data pertaining to articles' publication cost. The survey, conducted on 69 journals in the category of Oncology, was based on data from the 1992 Journal Citation Reports of the Science Citation Index (ISI, Institute for Scientific Information, Philadelphia). The work provides indications to researchers as for the relationship between journal quality and publication fees and, particularly, costs for offprints. Empirical results reveal the differences in publishing policies among the journals included in the study and indicate that a relationship between journal quality, as measured by Impact Factor, and offprint costs does not exist.
