What types of manuscripts are accepted?

Is there a submission fee?
There is no submission fee for manuscripts submitted for publication in JACCP.
Is there a publication fee?
JACCP is a subscription-based journal, so there is no article publication charge (APC) for authors unless they wish to publish their manuscript as Open Access (see below).
Is Open Access offered?
This journal offers authors an open access option called OnlineOpen to have an article immediately freely available to everyone, including those who don’t subscribe. To cover the cost of publishing OnlineOpen, authors pay an article publication charge (APC). The APC for this journal can be found on Wiley’s OnlineOpen Pricing page. Additional information about OnlineOpen can be found here.
How long does the peer review process take?
The journal strives to have a first decision to authors within 30 days of submission. Occasionally, the process takes longer because of sick days, holidays, travel plans, or other engagements. If you have not received a decision from the editor-in-chief after 45 days, please contact us at
How do I become a reviewer for the journal?
Those interested in becoming a reviewer for JACCP should send a curriculum vitae and their areas of practice and research expertise to Keri Sims (
When will the journal be indexed in PubMed?
By 2020, JACCP will be eligible to apply for MEDLINE indexing. Once JACCP is indexed, past published manuscripts will also be indexed.
When do you expect the journal to obtain its first impact factor?
Many factors can affect the date by which a new journal obtains an impact factor. JACCP will begin publishing manuscripts in 2018 and will apply for inclusion in the Web of Science databases in 2019. This process can take up to a year and often requires another few years before an impact factor can be reported. We hope to release JACCP’s first impact factor by 2021.
Is there a special subscription rate for ACCP members?
ACCP members receive full-text access to all JACCP articles free of charge.
How do you obtain BPS recertification credit through the journal?
To receive BPS recertification credit, participants must (1) purchase the recertification module’s posttest, (2) submit the posttest before the recertification deadline, and (3) achieve a passing score on the posttest.
