To remove financial constraints as a barrier to sharing and learning especially for authors from low and lower-middle income economies, Edorium Journals has formulated a waiver policy. Authors from the two groups of countries listed below receive waivers in Article Processing Charges for all journals published by Edorium Journals group. The two groups of countries were identified based on the classification of countries by World Bank (Gross national income and Gross national income per capita figures), United Nations (United Nations least developed country list and Human Development Index) and Health Inter Network Access to Research Initiative (HINARI).*
