Open access publishing is not without costs. Revista Chilena de Historia Natural therefore levies an article-processing charge of £1240/$1940/€1580 for each article accepted for publication, plus VAT or local taxes where applicable.
Revista Chilena de Historia Natural is the official journal of the Chilean Biology Society (Sociedad de Biología de Chile). Members of the Society will receive a discount on the article-processing charge when they provide a discount code (which members can obtain by emailing the Society) during the submission process. The discounted article-processing charge for Society members is €1090 in 2019.
If the corresponding author's institution participates in our open access membership program, some or all of the publication cost may be covered (more details available on the membership page).
We routinely waive charges for authors from low-income countries. For other countries, article-processing charge waivers or discounts are granted on a case-by-case basis to authors with insufficient funds. Authors can request a waiver or discount during the submission process. For further details, see our article-processing charge page.
BioMed Central provides a free open access funding support service to help authors discover and apply for article processing charge funding.
