All sections and submission types within BAMS, with the exception of Letters to the Editor, Comments, and Replies, are subject to page charges. The author's institution is expected to honor these charges.
The page charges outlined below include both print and online publication. Meeting Summaries will be billed at $50 per page. Manuscripts that include Supplemental Material will be billed a flat $50 feel to support the archiving of content. (Note this fee and Supplemental Material processing has been updated as of January 1, 2022. Authors who submitted a full manuscript containing supplemental material before 01/01/2022 can contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions regarding charge estimates or refer to the Supplemental Material information page.)
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. The higher page charges assessed for longer articles allow the charges associated with color printing to be spread among all authors so that color can be used generously in the publication.
BAMS encourages the use of color by authors and does not levy additional charges for color figures.
|Pages or media type||Charge|
|Pages 1–4||$105 per page|
|Pages 5–8||$290 per page|
|Pages 9+||$405 per page|
|Meeting Summaries||$50 per page|
|Supplemental Material (for full manuscripts submitted on or after 01/01/2022)||$50 per manuscript|
|Rich media files for BAMS Digital Edition||$20 per file|
|Color cover *||$2,150|
Reprints are available at an additional charge. All articles published in BAMS are available on AMS Journals Online. The BAMS portion of this online collection does not require a subscription and is open to all, providing even broader dissemination of the articles published in BAMS.
Articles are also part of the BAMS Digital Edition which offers members-only cover-to-cover online access to BAMS.
