JMIR authors can now add a crowdfunding widget to their article, soliciting small donations from the public for their research and their future publication costs.
Any donations will be credited to the author and can be used for future Article Processing Fees (APF) or paid out.
The crowdfunding widget appear on all articles in JMIR Research Protocols, and can be ordered as an add-on in the APF-payment checkout page for all other journals as described in the article How can I order/pay for knowledge dissemination add-ons like TrendMD or sponsored Tweets? .
This is currently in beta-test and the design of the widget is subject to change.
