Important note regarding page charges:
Submission of a manuscript will constitute expression of the author’s commitment to defray the cost of publication.  There are NO automatically assigned complimentary pages by Transplantation Proceedings.  In most cases, your meeting organizer will provide at least ONE manuscript page to authors, however, they will contact us directly and your invoice, if accepted, will reflect the discount.   Authors MUST assume that they are responsible for ALL page charges at US$99.95 each, payable upon invoice from Elsevier, if accepted for publication following review.  No payment is due at the time of submission as all manuscripts undergo extensive review.   Authors will be notified of the outcome of their manuscript following review.  This may take between 12-16 weeks.

Page charges are verified by the Editorial Office of Transplantation Proceedings which may differ from the page count you may list on your Financial Agreement Form as they are based on our Formatting Guidelines:  the double spaced typed, submitted page (not on the printed page and not by the pdf of the page proof), referred to as “manuscript page”.  Tables/Figures are counted as one manuscript page each.  A publication charge of U.S. $99.95 per manuscript page will be invoiced by our publisher, Elsevier prior to the publication of accepted manuscripts.  No payment is due until the review process is completed by our reviewers and the page proofs are prepared by Elsevier.  Please note that there are no charges incurred for the Abstract, Title page, or correspondence information.  Also, each Table or illustration must be counted as one manuscript page due to the increased production time needed for this material.    Extra charges are applied for publication of color graphics in the printed form of the issues, however, they color reproduction of graphics are free of charge online.

The proceedings of the Congress will appear in the journal, Transplantation Proceedings.
