Article Processing Charges

The journal Ecosystem Health and Sustainability is an Open Access journal supported by article processing charges (APCs). There are no submission charges.

APC rate

Ecological Society of China (ESC) will partially subsidize APCs, allowing authors to pay the following reduced rate for all article types: $2,000 USD

This rate is exclusive of any taxes or duties that may be levied or assessed on it. Tax is based on the customer location and is not applicable for all customers. Tax will be automatically added where applicable during the payment process.


The Science Partner Journals (SPJ) Program will offer full APC waivers to authors in the developing world (Hinari A & B countries). Additionally, full or partial waivers may be available to those experiencing financial hardships. Waivers may be requested at any point in the editorial workflow (pre-submission to acceptance) but are not granted until acceptance. Contact the Science Partner Journal (SPJ) program business office to inquire about waivers.
