Agricultural and Food Economics is a 100% Gold Open Access journal. Publishing is not without costs, and the journal currently levies an APC of €1020/£860/$1245 for each article accepted for publication. Authors do not typically pay the fee themselves; multiple payment options exist.
- SIDEA members receive a discount upon entering a code, pre-arranged with the Society, on submission.
- Non-members of SIDEA who affirm they would like Society support receive a different discount by entering the following the code on submission: MS-SIDEA-JAFE-0219.
- 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.
