Journal of Energy Bioscience is committed to publishing and disseminating significant original achievements in the related research fields of energy biosciences. All papers chosen for publication should be innovative research work, covering the collection and identification of bioenergy materials, the genetic improvement and breeding of bioenergy organisms, the extraction methods and techniques of biomass energy, the application of biomass energy, and other related research fields.
The primary criterion for publication is new insights that are not only of broad interest to geneticist, molecular biologists, and applied biologists, but are also appropriate for energy engineers, researchers engaged in the exploitation and application of bioenergy, and readers interested in the study of energy bioscience.
There is a cost for the establishment and operation of periodicals in BioPublisher. The BioPublisher publishing platform levies Journal Operating Costs （JOCs）from the operators of the periodicals, which are used for renting the network space, upgrading and maintaining the journal publishing system, the cost of publishing database ，daily operation and the maintenance of the publishing platform.
BioPublisher recommends that journal operator covers the cost by collecting article processing charges (APCs) from authors and let the research results be freely accessed by readers and collected institutes. The standard article processing charges are recommended to be 1200 CAD per article. However，Authors from low-income countries and areas or having financial difficulties can apply for the discount for APC upon submission. If the authors are qualified for the fees to be waived they don’t necessarily pay the APC. We do not want fees to prevent the publication of worthy works.
