Thank you for your manuscript submission to JAWRA. JAWRA recognizes an obligation to the water community and to its authors to distribute the knowledge contained within its pages as widely as possible. To accomplish this in an economically sustainable manner, an article processing fee (APF) partially covering the costs of producing JAWRA is assessed at the time a paper is accepted for publication. Papers are not published until the APC is paid in full. Rates are subject to change and charges will be incurred at the prevailing rates at the time of acceptance. Current rates are:

Research Articles/Literature Review
This is a subscription journal that offers an open access option. These articles are treated the same as any other article. They go through the journal's standard peer-review process and will be accepted or rejected based on their own merit. After an article's acceptance, authors are offered the option to pay an additional Article Publication Charge (APC) to make their article open access.
All standard publication charges will still apply; a member discount is not available for this option. You can read more about open-access APCs and whether you may be eligible for waivers or discounts, through your institution, funder, or a country waiver for publishing your paper via the open access option.
