Agricultural and Food Economics is a 100% Gold Open Access journal. Publishing is not without costs, and the journal currently levies an APC of £1000 (£840/$1230) for each article accepted for publication. Authors do not typically pay the fee themselves; multiple payment options exist.
- SIDEA members pay a discounted fee of 100 EUR by entering a code, pre-arranged with the Society, on submission.
- Non-members pay discounted APC of 650 EUR if they affirm they would like Society support and enter: MS-SIDEA-JAFE-0219 on submission.
- Alternatively, if your institution is a SpringerOpen member, enter your affiliation on submission to receive a discount; amounts vary by institution and cannot be combined with Society funding.
- Authors can also request a waiver/discount, based on unavailability of research funding and/or country of origin.
For further details, see our article-processing charge page. SpringerOpen offers a free funding and support service to help authors discover and apply for article processing charge funding. Visit our OA funding and policy support page to view our list of research funders and institutions that provide funding for APCs, and to learn more about our email support service. The way your APC is covered has no bearing on the editorial outcome of your submission.
