Article Publication Charges

All articles published in Journal of Advances in Modeling Earth Systems (JAMES) are fully open access: immediately available to read, download and share. To cover publication costs, JAMES charges a publication fee.

The publication fee is based on the following formula: $50/PU

PU= Publishing Unit. Total publishing units= Number of words/500 + Number of figures + Number of tables

Word count includes abstract, text, and figure captions only.
Word count excludes titles, author lists and affiliations, tables, and references.
Tables larger than one page should be .xls or .csv files in supporting information.

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.
