Open Access

FEBS Open Bio is an Open Access journal with no subscribers. A fee is payable by the author or research funder to cover the costs associated with publication. This ensures each article will be immediately and permanently free for anyone to access. The Open Access publication fee for this journal is $1495, excluding taxes. Authors will be asked to pay the article publication charge on acceptance of their article.

Your institute or funder may have an agreement with Wiley to pay all or some of the article publication charge on your behalf. You can check here. Waivers and discounts are available to authors from countries eligible for the Research4Life programs. You can check the lists of countries here.
