This new family builds on, and better connects, existing leader BMC journals in the field, and expands the portfolio with new high-quality gold open access journals, aiming to support the same community of scientists.

Waivers Available

For articles submitted in 2024 and 2025, Aquaculture Science and Management has waivers available to offer that can be allocated on acceptance. Once the standard peer review process has been completed and the Editors have made a decision to accept the article, authors who have been granted a waiver won’t need to pay an APC. Enquire here for more information or to request a waiver.

Announcing the launch of In Review

Aquaculture Science and Management, in partnership with Research Square, is now offering In Review. Authors choosing this free optional service will be able to:

  • Share their work with fellow researchers to read, comment on, and cite even before publication
  • Showcase their work to funders and others with a citable DOI while it is still under review
  • Track their manuscript - including seeing when reviewers are invited, and when reports are received
