Open Access Publishing in the Journal of the World Aquaculture Society

The Journal of the World Aquaculture Society transitioned to a fully Open Access journal from June 2021. Since that date, all articles accepted and published in Journal of the World Aquaculture Society are fully Open Access: immediately freely available to read, download and share. 

Submissions will be subject to an APC if accepted and published in the journal:
2100 USD / 1650 GBP / 1900 EUR

World Aquaculture Society members will receive a discount of 20%; thus, for WAS members, the fee will be 1680 USD / 1320 GBP / 1520 EUR

Automatic Article Publication Charge waivers and discounts will be given to authors from countries on the Waivers and Discounts List. This journal offer discounts for select authors so 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. Please see Wiley’s pages on agreements with Funders, Institutions and our Author Compliance Tool to find out more about what arrangements your funder may have made to pay for Open Access. 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.
