Article processing charge

Innovative Biosystems and Bioengineering (IBB) is published as an "golden" open-access journal, whereby individuals anywhere in the world can read, download and share our peer-reviewed articles free of charge. Such unrestricted online access ensures that authors can have their work read by a much larger audience than is typically possible through more traditional subscription-based journals.

Authors are required to pay a one-time Article Processing Charge (APC) to cover the expenses associated with the administration and management of the peer-review process, the professional production of articles, and the dissemination of published papers. The APC is applicable only to accepted articles. No fees are solicited from authors during the submission and evaluation process. There are no charges for rejected articles, and no additional fees are imposed based on the length of an article, number of figures, or supplementary data. Editorials, Corrections, Addendums, and Retractions are published free of charge.

The APC is 2500 UAH. Invoices are emailed shortly after acceptance to the corresponding author. APCs are payable up to 10 business days. Only official invoices issued by IBB ( are valid. We do not authorize any third party to collect the APCs. 

As of now, IBB offers APC waivers (100 %) for papers whose corresponding authors are affiliated with organizations outside Ukraine.
