Publication charges ...

The Prairie Naturalist has a publication charge to help cover the cost of publishing the journal, but a partial or full subvention to cover the cost of the charge may be considered for special circumstances, prior to acceptance of a manuscript for review. The rate is $60 per journal page. There is no charge for color figures. There is a $25 charge for each supplemental file.

With regard to subventions, we especially welcome manuscript inquiries/proposals from first authors who are young researchers, such as graduate students and post-doctoral students, who are in the early stages of establishing their careers.

Research sponsors, institutions, and authors understand that publication charges are routine and necessary to produce a high-quality scientific journal that is published in a timely manner. Consequences of changes in employment or affiliation need to be anticipated in a timely manner. Arrangements and a guarantee of payment are the personal responsibility of the authors.

Authors may post a print-quality pdf file of their article on their personal website and their home institution’s website.
