All articles published in the South African Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology are open access and freely available online upon publication. This is made possible by applying a business model to offset the costs of peer review management, copyediting, design and production, by charging an article-processing charge (APC) of R3 500 (VAT incl.) for short articles and R7 500 (VAT incl.) for full-length articles published. The APC is standard and does not vary based on length, colour, figures, or other elements.

When submitting a Research article to the SAJOG, the submitting author must agree to pay the APC should the article be accepted for publication. The APC is payable when your manuscript is editorially accepted and before production commences for publication. The submitting author will be notified that payment is due and given details on the available methods of payment. Prompt payment is advised; the article will not enter into production until payment is received.
