BSSS Journal Survey
We would like your views on the European Journal of Soil Science (EJSS) and Soil Use and Management (SUM) because we want to make them more relevant to you as readers and authors.
In particular, we would like to know about your experience of open access publishing. Open access means that the final published version of your paper would be free and universally accessible immediately upon publication. Both journals, the EJSS and SUM, give authors the option to publish their papers as open access.
To cover the cost of publishing open access in these journals, authors pay an article publication charge (APC) of $3,000 at present.
