Low Rate Open Access Fees

Annals of Botany offers extremely competitive rates for Open Access publication, supported by its not-for-profit status. Corresponding authors/institutions can choose to pay a subsidized rate of 1000 GBP/1600 USD/1300 EUR, approximately 40% below the previous normal charge, and open access is further discounted or free for developing countries (more details and a list of qualifying countries can be found at:

After your manuscript is accepted the corresponding author will be required to accept a mandatory licence to publish agreement. As part of the licensing process you will be asked to indicate whether or not you wish to pay for open access. If you do not select the open access option, your paper will be published with standard subscription-based access and you will not be charged.

You can pay Open Access charges using our Author Services site. This will enable you to pay online with a credit/debit card, or request an invoice by email or post.
