About the journal

  Tropical Medicine and Health 

Tropical Medicine and Health, the official journal of the Japanese Society of Tropical Medicine, has been publishing high quality peer-reviewed articles and reviews for over 50 years.




TMH is transferred to BioMed Central. The journal's new website is

The Japanese Society of Tropical Medicine (JSTM) is pleased to announce that BioMed Central is the new publisher of Tropical Medicine and Health (TMH). To submit your manuscript via the new submission system, please click here.

Please be noticed that the manuscript should be prepared to follow the new instruction for authors.

TMH will continue as an open access publication as part of BioMed Central’s high-quality portfolio of open access journals. The transition to BioMed Central’s platform is currently underway, and will be completed in January 2016.

All new submissions should conform to both TMH and BioMed Central’s editorial policies. An article-processing charge (APC) is levied to cover the cost of the publication process, including peer-reviewing, editing, publishing, maintaining and archiving, and allows immediate access to the full text versions of the articles. The standard APC for TMH is £705/$1105/€900 for each article accepted for publication. If the corresponding author's institution is a BioMed Central Member, the cost of the article-processing charge is covered by the membership, and no further charge is payable. In the case of authors whose institutions are Supporter Members, however, a discounted article-processing charge is payable by the author. We routinely waive charges for authors from low-income countries. For other countries, article-processing charge waivers or discounts are granted on a case-by-case basis to authors with insufficient funds. Authors can request a waiver or discount during the submission process. For further details, see our article-processing charge page.

Authors publishing in TMH can request a discount on the journal’s article-processing charge (APC) that is payable upon editorial acceptance of articles. The discount must be requested during the article submission process, by entering a code that can be obtained from the JSTM office. The discounted APC is €450 for Society members (Regular, Postdoctoral and Student membership holders), and €700 for other authors.

Finally, we would like to convey our cordial request to all of you for your continued support of TMH.

Best wishes,

Osamu Kaneko, President, Japanese Society of Tropical Medicine
Masahiro Hashizume, Editor-in-Chief, Tropical Medicine and Health
