Agricultural and Food Economics is a 100% Gold Open Access journal. Articles published in Gold OA format confer CC-BY copyright to the author and are immediately available to be read, cited, and built upon by all. APCs are charged on article acceptance. For further details, see our article-processing charge webpage.
Publishing is not without costs, and the journal levies the 2023 APC of £940.00/$1340.00/€1090.00 for each article accepted for publication. However, authors do not typically pay the fee themselves, and the way your APC is covered has no bearing on the editorial outcome of your submission.
Did you know that there are almost 200 open access article processing charge (APC) funds available to researchers worldwide? Many funding bodies require that research publications resulting from their grants are made freely available to all. By publishing your research with us you fully comply with open access mandates, and the publishing costs may be entirely covered by the research grant. This means that you won’t have to pay any publishing fee and you retain the copyright (check here how to discover more).
You may also be eligible for a waiver/discount based on unavailability of research funding and/or country of origin (click here to discover more).
Are you still unable to find coverage for your article? SpringerOpen offers a free funding and support service to help authors discover and apply for article processing charge funding. Visit the OA funding and policy support page to learn more about our email support service.
From 2023 to 2027, SIDEA members pay €200. To receive this funding, members should contact the journal to receive instructions.
