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. Journal of Future Foods 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 Journal of Future Foods is USD $1200 (or EUR €1050, CNY ¥8000), excluding taxes, for each article accepted for publication. For all articles submitted before the 31st December 2025 the APC will be waived, making it free to publish in the journal.
