Question 1:

I wrote an article during my two month research training program, however, I cannot afford the Channel 279USD fee per article, can I bypass the channel and publish the article in the Cureus medical journal as a non-channel article?

•Any article that a student wrote with the CiBNP during the two month training, cannot be published in the Cureus journal without the CiBNP-Cureus channel.

Question 2:

I am an ex-student and I have written a new article on my own and now want to publish in Cureus on my own without the channel. Can I do that? Or I have to still choose the Channel?

• All the future articles that you write afterwards can be published without the channel because they are the students’ independent articles. But the students are most welcome to submit their future articles via the channel to enhance the speed and chances of publication.

Question 3:

If I write an article and submit to the journal without going through the channel, what are the consequences?

• Cureus and CiBNP are working together to help the students becoming published authors, therefore, the Cureus journal knows which article was written under the CiBNP affiliation. Therefore, any student deliberately trying to bypass the channel could be permanently banned by both organizations. This means the student cannot publish in Cureus ever and you cannot join any other CiBNP course in the future and the certificate for the two month training will be confiscated.
