Page Charges
Due to increased costs of publication, the Environmental and Engineering Society is instituting a new fee schedule for articles published in JEEG.  The fee schedule will begin for new articles submitted in 2021. The fee schedule was also designed with EEGS' desire to encourage authors to become members of EEGS.

  • For members (the first or corresponding author needs to be an EEGS Member): Flat rate per article of $100 (USD), excess page charge (for each page beyond 10 journal pages) of $50, and color figure fee of $100 per color figure.  (Join EEGS or renew membership)
  • For non-members: Flat rate per article of $500, excess page charge (for each page beyond 10 journal pages) of $100, and color figure fee of $100 per color figure.

These fees will be assessed upon acceptance of the article for publication.  Once the page count has been determined by the Editors and communicated to the author, authors should use the Page Charges Order form to submit payment to the Editors ([email protected] or 
[email protected]).  Once payment is processed, the Editors will be notified that the manuscript can be published.
