Article Processing Charges

Open Access provides free and immediate online access to the scholarly literature for anyone in the world to read, distribute and reuse. Animal Nutrition offsets all the costs associated with our high-quality publishing service through article processing charges (APC): articles that are accepted for publication by our Editors-in-Chief following rigorous peer review incur a publishing fee charged to authors, institutions or funders.

The APC of Animal Nutrition is US$1720 for each article accepted for publication, plus VAT or local taxes where applicable.

To reduce the cost burden on authors, for submissions received from August 1, 2020 to July 31, 2021, if published, Animal Nutrition charges 50% of the APC, equating to a publication cost of US$860. For review submissions received from April 1, 2021 to July 31, 2021, if published, Animal Nutrition charges 40% of the APC, equating to a publication cost of US$688.

Beginning with submissions received from August 1, 2021, if published, Animal Nutrition charges 85% of the APC, equating to US$1462, and to encourage review submissions, Animal Nutrition charges 60% of the APC, equating to US$1032 for publishing a review paper.
