Open Access Publishing

Authors may choose to make their article fully Open Access (sometimes called ‘Gold Open Access’) on payment of an Article Processing Charge. 

For Proceedings of the Yorkshire Geological Society the APC is £1000/$2000. There is a 50% discount for articles where all the authors are at a research institution in a developing country. 

More information on the Society’s policy can be found at

You do not need to pay until after your article is accepted. You will be sent a form with payment information shortly after your article is accepted.

If you require Open Access but cannot pay the APC, the Geological Society also supports ‘Green Open Access’, where you can post your final post-refereed version of the article to a website or repository 12 months after the online publication date.

Authors must not post a typeset proof or final version to any website or repository unless the article is fully Open Access.
