Fees and funding

Article-processing charges

Open access publishing is not without costs. Sustainable Environment Research therefore levies an article-processing charge of £1240/$1690/€1390 for each article accepted for publication. 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.

Sustainable Environment Research is supported by the Chinese Institute of Environmental Engineering, and a discounted APC may be available for Members. If you are a member, please reach out to Fenet Tseng ( to get a discount code.

For non-members of the Chinese Institute of Environmental Engineering, some or all of the publication cost may be covered if the corresponding author's institution participates in our open access membership program (more details available on the membership page).

BMC provides a free open access funding support service to help authors discover and apply for article processing charge funding.
