Information for JATS members

(Information updated on 18 November)

The Japanese Association for Thoracic Surgery covers the article-processing charge (APC) for the papers submitted by the member of the society. To receive this benefit, author's membership status must be verified at the time of editorial acceptance of their manuscript.

As from 17 November 2022, due to system change, authors are no longer requested to submit Membership Account Code to claim coverage of APC for society members during the process of making new manuscript submission. Instead, members are able to request APC coverage at editorial acceptance. 

See below for further information:
