Open Access charges for journals that publish geomorphology research

Here I compiled the Open Access charges for journals that publish geomorphology research (i.e., Gold Open Access; Author Pays). I’m sure some are missing — let me know which publications I should add to this list.

Keep in mind that some journals have page charges even if the articles are not Open Access, some journals provide open access after a given time period, and other journals ONLY publish Open Access. Your institution may also have an agreement with a publisher about paying the fee (i.e., they will pay for you)…

I hope to periodically update this list.. The data below was collected on March 26th 2017.
