Landscape Online is a non profit journal, supported by the IALE community. Without the support of many volunteers this journal would not be possible. Furthermore, as the journal publisher, IALE Germany covers all expenses for article formatting and production and registration with DOI. Therefore, submission of a manuscript is free of charge. For refunding the publisher invoices a cost covering fee to the authors if an article is accepted for publication. This fee currently amounts to 400 Euros per article.

Fee Waiver Offers

With financial support of IALE - International Association for Landscape Ecology authors can apply for fee waivers (20% reduction) prior to article submission, in particular without access to any funds supporting open access publication (e.g. List of Open Access Publication Funds), and if one of the following criteria applies:

  1. PhD students, listed as first author of a manuscript;

  3. Editors and reviewers of the journal (at least one review needs to be provided in the year before);

Waivers cannot be accumulated.
