Fees and funding

Article-processing charges

Open access publishing is not without costs. Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences therefore levies an article-processing charge of  £1370/ $2145/ €1745 for each article accepted for publication. We routinely waive charges for authors from low-income countries. For other countries, article-processing charge waivers or discounts are granted on a case-by-case basis to authors with insufficient funds. Authors can request a waiver or discount during the submission process. For further details, see our article-processing charge page.

If you are a member of the Korean Society of Fisheries and Aquatic Science, the society will cover the publication charges for you article. Please contact your society administrator for more information.

For non-members of the Society, some or all of the publication cost may be covered if the corresponding author's institution participates in our open access membership program (more details available on the membership page).

BioMed Central provides a free open access funding support service to help authors discover and apply for article processing charge funding.
