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.
Important announcement：The Executive Board of BioPublisher approved the exemption of Article Processing Cost for 2019. In order to support the development of this Journal, we encourage authors to donate voluntarily to the APC of this Journal. We appreciate your support.
