Authors who receive funding from an agency or institution with a Wiley Open Access Account do not pay directly. The charge is paid by the institution or funder. More details are available here.


Taxes on publication charges

Authors and Institutions resident in any of the EU countries that participate in VAT that are not registered for VAT will have Value-Added Tax (VAT, at their local relevant rate) to add.

If the Author/Institution is VAT registered, by providing their VAT registration number a tax invoice can be accommodated under the reverse charge. (This is a mechanism where VAT would not need to be added to the payment). The VAT registered customer will account for the VAT when they prepare their VAT return as both an “in” and an “out”, producing a nil effect.

In Memoriam: Darrell R. Abernethy, M.D. Ph.D.

It is with deep sadness that the Editorial Team at PR&P must convey the news that Darrell Abernethy, Editor in Chief of the Journal, has recently passed away. Darrell has been instrumental in raising the profile and quality of PR&P in both his roles on the Journal, first as Deputy Editor and then Editor. He has been a true inspiration to so many of our authors and editors who work in the field of pharmacology, very much a team player, providing considered and thoughtful responses. His wise counsel will be missed.

Rest in peace

PR&P Editorial Team
