The Journal offers two sections according to the domain(s) of research mainly covered by the bioresources described:
Submitting a bioresource paper to the Open Journal of Bioresources is quick and easy, as follows.
Article Processing Charges
If your paper is accepted for publication, you will be asked to pay an Article Publication Charge (APC) of £350 to cover publications costs. This fee can normally be sourced from your funder or institution, and we recommend approaching them about this at the time of submission.
You will be able to pay any amount from nothing to full charge, as we recognise that not all authors have access to funding, and we do not want fees to prevent the publication of worthy work. The editor and peer reviewers of the journal will not know what amount (if any) you have paid, and this will in no way influence whether your article is published or not.
Please submit your completed template to the online submission system when ready for review.
As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
Authors who publish with this journal agree to the following terms. If a submission is rejected or withdrawn prior to publication, all rights return to the author(s):
Submitting to the journal implicitly confirms that all named authors and rights holders have agreed to the above terms of publication. It is the submitting author's responsibility to ensure all authors and relevant institutional bodies have given their agreement at the point of submission.
Note: some institutions require authors to seek written approval in relation to the terms of publication. Should this be required, authors can request a separate licence agreement document from the editorial team (e.g. authors who are Crown employees).
|Human Bioresources Papers||£350.00|
|Agronomic and Environmental Sciences Bioresources Papers||£350.00|
Tax will be added to all fees charged, when applicable (includes VAT/Sales tax or any other applicable taxes).
If your paper is accepted for publication, you will be asked to pay an Article Publication Charge (APC) to cover publication costs, which can normally be sourced from your funder or institution. This fee covers all publication costs (editorial processes; web hosting; indexing; marketing; archiving; DOI registration etc) and ensures that all of the content is fully open access. This approach maximises the potential readership of publications and allows the journal to be run in a sustainable way. For a breakdown of costs, please click here.
Many institutions now have funds available to support open access publications by their staff.
If you do not know about your institution’s policy on open access funding, please contact your departmental/faculty administrators and institution library, as funds may be available to you.
Several other foundations, institutes, societies and associations offer publication grants (not exclusive to Open Access) based on subject relevance.
If published, you will receive an APC request email along with information on how payment can be arranged.
If you do not have funds available to pay the APC (e.g. because your institution/funder will not cover the fee) then we may be able to offer a discount or full waiver. Please ensure that you contact the editor at the time of submission (e.g. in the cover letter) should you need to discuss waiver options or the APC in general.
Editorial decisions are made independently from the ability to pay the APC.
