Article Processing Charges for this journal
Plant Genetic Resources is a hybrid Open Access journal, meaning that it publishes on a subscription basis but provides authors with options to make their article open access in two different ways. Green OA applies to all of Cambridge University Press's journal articles but is primarily designed to support OA for articles that are otherwise only available by subscription or other payment. For that reason, the copyright freedoms allowed are more restrictive than under a Gold OA option which is also available at Plant Genetic Resources.
Under the conditions detailed on the Journal’s licence to publish form, when an article is accepted, its authors are free to post their accepted version of the accepted manuscript - not the Version of Record - on a:
- Department or institutional repository 6 months after publication
- Non-commercial subject repository 6 months after publication
- Commercial repository or social media site - only abstract plus link to VoR on cambridge.org
We have made a number of Read and Publish agreements to support Open Access. Authors at participating institutions may be eligible for waivers or discounts, depending on the deal. Please click here to find out more.
In this case, the final published ‘Version of Record’ shall be made freely available to all, in perpetuity, and will be published under a creative commons licence, enabling its free re-use and re- distribution for non-commercial means.
