Article Processing Charges

The journal Plant Phenomics is an Open Access journal supported by article processing charges (APCs). There are no submission charges.

APC Rate

From 2018–2021, all APCs were paid by Nanjing Agricultural University (NAU). Authors whose work was accepted for publication in Plant Phenomics in those years were not required to pay an APC. Authors whose work is accepted for publication January 1, 2022 or after are responsible for paying an APC.

Furthering their commitment to authors, NAU will partially subsidize APCs in 2022, allowing authors to pay the below reduced rate:

$2500 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.


    Beginning in 2022, 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.
