Open Access Notice:
Springer Nature has recently undertaken an annual review of our article processing charges (APC) across our entire open access portfolio, to ensure that the APCs remain fair for our authors. The review considered a number of factors including the time and investment required with publishing in a particular journal, ensuring author expectation of turnaround time is met, making sure that the article is properly indexed and shared, and that other author services can be developed and delivered.
Based on this review, in 2021 the open access APC for Organic Agriculture will increase by ~1% to 2190 EUR / 2780 USD / 1890 GBP. The 2021 price will be updated on our website in October this year, and will be applied to manuscripts in January 2021.
