Article-processing charges

Open access publishing is not without costs. Fire Ecology therefore levies an article-processing charge (APC) for articles accepted for publication.

Original research articles, reviews, forum articles and monographs are subject to the full APC of £1370.00/$2145.00/€1745.00*

Technical notes, field notes, book reviews and classic reprints are short article types and are therefore subject to a lower APC of £753.50/$1179.75/€959.75*. The AFE membership discount does not apply to these article types.

Members of the Association for Fire Ecology are eligible for a 15% discount on Original research articles, Reviews, Forum articles and Monographs. This is applied through a membership code which can be obtained directly from the Association.

If the submitting author's institution is a Member, the cost of the article-processing charge is covered by the membership, and no further charge is payable. In the case of authors whose institutions are Supporter Members, however, a discounted article-processing charge is payable by the author. 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.
