How much does it cost
to publish a paper in RBT?

Our journal has struggled since 1953 to publish valuable papers without any charge to the authors, a policy that continues to this day for manuscripts that do not exceed 10 pages and do not include color plates.

However, if you have the ability to help cover printing costs of your publication (for example, funds from any project), you will not only help disseminate the biological knowledge but also support other colleagues who, especially in less industrialized countries, have in our journal an affordable way to publicize its findings to the scientific world.
