There is no submission fees for Journal of Ecology and Environment. Payment of Article Processing Charges (APC) is due when the Journal accepts the article for publication. For ESK and KSL members, APC is 600,000 KRW or 510 USD per manuscript and will be billed upon acceptance. Those who want to join ESK membership, there is one-time registration fee of 9 USD (10,000 KRW) and an annual fee of 41 USD (50,000 KRW). APC is 800,000 KRW (660 USD) without ESK membership. There are no additional charges for additional pages or color figures or extra data. We routinely waive charges for authors from low-income countries. For other countries, a discount (half amount of the regular APC) can be granted on a case-by-case basis to authors with insufficient funds. For those who have no funding sources for their articles can apply a discount for APC. Authors can request a waiver or discount during the submission process.
We will provide a waiver if you are based in a country which is classified by the World Bank as a low-income or a lower-middle-income economy. Please request this waiver of discount during submission. See here for further information and a full list* of qualifying countries.
We have a fast-track peer review system with extra payment. If you prefer to submit your manuscript through the fast-track, please contact the journal office(email@example.com) before submission. The fast-track fee is 330 USD (400,000 KRW) should be pre-paid before manuscript submission. The first-round decision on the manuscript on fast-track will be given within 2 weeks from the submission date. When fast-track peer review process is not fast enough as our policy, the fast-track fee will be deducted from the final APC.
