Fees and pricing

This page contains information about fees that may be incurred when you publish in this journal.

Article processing charges (APCs)

This is a hybrid journal, which means it provides authors with options to make their articles open access, including the option to publish Gold Open Access under a Creative Commons licence. In many cases Gold Open Access articles are supported by an article processing charge (APC), typically paid by the corresponding author’s funding body or institution. Cambridge University Press has also made a number of agreements to support open access, which may cover all or part of the costs associated with Gold Open Access for authors at participating institutions. Please see this journal's open access options for full details.

For articles that are not published Gold Open Access, no fee is required.

Please see the table below for this journal’s APC fees.

Colour Figures

Colour figures will be published online free of charge, and there is a fee of £200 per figure for colour figures in the printed format of the journal. However, the Senior Editors are often able to offer a subsidy from British Lichen Society funds to its members who find that they have insufficient money to meet the full cost of colour printing. Authors should consult the Senior Editors in this case.
