Article Publication Charges

Fees and Discounts for Publishing in MicrobiologyOpen

All articles published by MicrobiologyOpen are fully open access: immediately freely available to read, download and share. To cover the cost of publishing, MicrobiologyOpen charges a publication fee.

MicrobiologyOpen’s standard publication charge for authors submitting directly to the journal is set out below. For authors referred with the peer-review reports from another Wiley journal, the publication charge is discounted by 20%.

The single highest discount applies (discounts are exclusive of each other and cannot be accumulated).

Amount Payable by Author Discount Reference Discount Amount
$2,400 / £1,544 / €1,820 Full Article Publication Charge N/A
$1,920 / £1,235 / €1,456 Manuscript Referral Transfer Discount 20%
$2,160 / £1,390 / €1,638 Supporting Societies Members' Discount 10%

Automatic Article Publication Charge waivers and discounts will be given to authors from countries on the Waivers and Discounts List. Authors should submit a waiver or discount request during the submission of their article.

Authors who receive funding from an agency or institution with a Wiley Open Access Account do not pay directly. The charge is paid by the institution or funder. Authors whose institutions have paid the Wiley Open Access partner fee are eligible for a discount on the publication charge and on acceptance a discounted fee is payable by the author. More details are available here.

Taxes on publication charges
Authors and Institutions resident in any of the EU countries that participate in VAT that are not registered for VAT will have Value-Added Tax (VAT, at their local relevant rate) to add.

If the Author/Institution is VAT registered, by providing their VAT registration number a tax invoice can be accommodated under the reverse charge. (This is a mechanism where VAT would not need to be added to the payment). The VAT registered customer will account for the VAT when they prepare their VAT return as both an “in” and an “out”, producing a nil effect.
