BAMS Page Charges

All sections and submission types within BAMS, with the exception of Letters to the Editor, Comments, and Replies, are subject to page charges. By submitting to BAMS it is expected that the author has funds reserved to honor these charges. With the exception of Explaining Extreme Events submissions, authors are required to complete the Initial Estimation Worksheet at initial submission and are required to complete the Publication Charge Form after acceptance.

Supplemental Material Charges

Manuscripts that include Supplemental Material will be billed an additional $50 fee to support the archiving of content.

Page Charges—Explaining Extreme Events

Explaining Extreme Events papers will be billed a flat fee of $975.

Page Charges—Meeting Summaries

Meeting Summaries will be billed at $50 per page.

Page Charges—All other submission types

So that all sectors of the Society can participate in publishing in BAMS, a low page charge is assessed for the first four printed pages.

BAMS encourages the use of color by authors and does not levy additional charges for color figures.
