Article Processing Charge (APC)
Open Access articles are free for anyone to read and download, all over the world. In order to sustain this model, we charge authors an article processing charge (APC) which covers the cost of editorial assistance, article production, indexing, and marketing.
As a not-for-profit society publisher, any surplus generated by our publishing activities are rechanneled towards the charitable missions of the International Water Association; including contributions to sustainable development in a water-wise world.
The APC for Water Quality Research Journal is $1850 / £1400 / €1650.
IWA Publishing is pleased to offer APC waivers for authors from developing countries and to authors from our institutional partners. Please see here to check if you qualify for one of these waivers. For a full list of IWA Publishing journal APCs, please see here.
