Open access policy

The Journal of Dairy Science® offers two options for publication of articles: Standard Page Charges and Open Access.

Standard Page Charges
The current charge for publication is $65 per printed page in the journal for articles if at least one author is a professional member of ADSA. If no authors are ADSA members, the publication charge is $140 per journal page. The cost to publish a color figure is $650 (per figure). There is charge for all offprints and reprints. An offprint order form will be sent to the corresponding author with the author proof.

Open Access (CC BY-NC-ND 3.0)
To publish an article under an Open Access (OA) CC BY-NC-ND 3.0 license (, authors should contact the editorial office when their paper is accepted for publication. A separate licensing form and fee agreement will be sent to the corresponding author of the paper for completion. For authors who choose to pay the OA fee instead of page charges, their paper will become freely available upon publication in an online issue. The OA fee is $1750 if at least one author is a professional member of ADSA or $3500 if no authors are ADSA members.

Articles for Deposit
Author(s) publishing shall bear sole responsibility for meeting the specific deposit requirements of their funders. ADSA supports author self-archiving. Authors may deposit the accepted (peer-reviewed pre-typeset only) manuscript into a non-commercial institutional repository; the embargo period before release in a non-commercial institutional repository is 12 months (or the embargo period specified by the funder) after publication in a journal issue.
