Fees and funding
Open access publishing is not without costs. The article-processing charges (APCs) for Journal of Animal Science and Biotechnology are partially supported by the Da Bei Nong Education Foundation Program of the China Agricultural University Education Foundation and authors need to pay €700/£550/$860 for each article accepted for publication. Please be aware that any other discount (i.e.: institution membership discount) would not be applicable to the APC.
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.
BioMed Central provides a free open access funding 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.
