The Corporate Citizenship Program
is for authors from economically developing nations (according to the classification of the previous year set forth by the International Monetary Fund (IMF)), or other countries as FP deems suitable according to economic factors. Authors from these nations may receive the full-level of editing services from Filipodia Publishing's group of expert and experienced professional science/medical editors at a deeply discounted cost.
The application fee of $45.00 covers the evaluation of your documents by our CCP department staff and administration as well as the full assessment of your manuscript and all accompanying documents by our expert editors to determine the service level and turnaround time. The application fee is non-refundable, but will be applied towards your total editing bill should you accept the cost quote and sign the contract for editing service.
**Authors requiring Certificate Service for papers to be submitted to BPG journals do NOT need to apply to the CCP and should submit their quote request here: https://filipodia.submittable.com/submit/44245
The requirements for a manuscript's acceptance for CCP editing service include:
1) Affiliations with an IMF-defined developing nation (or our up-to-date list of CCP-approved countries) for the:
First author, and
Second author (if the paper has 4 or more authors total) and
2) Signed "Affidavit of Developing Country Affiliation", which should be
downloaded from our website or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Authors must apply to the program for each project they wish to be considered for the deeply discounted service. Perpetual acceptance into the program is not offered, and there is no guarantee of continued acceptance for multiple projects for any author.
This program is in line with Filipodia Publishing's on-going efforts to support international and interdisciplinary collaboration between academic and clinical researchers and to promote academic integrity and publication ethics across the globe.
