There are no mandatory publishing charges. CSIRO Publishing has partnered with the Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) to offer a fast and convenient way for authors to select options that can be chosen for publication and pay any author charges if relevant. Options may include:
Once your manuscript has been peer reviewed and accepted for publication, the corresponding author will be sent an email from the CCC with information on how to complete payment of any author charges. Payments should be made using the web-based RightsLink platform. On receipt of the email from the CCC, please click on the link in the email, which will take you to the transaction procedure at RightsLink. Here you will be prompted to create a RightsLink account if you do not already have one and choose options for publication.
To facilitate fast publication, please confirm your options for publication as soon as possible after receiving this email. Please note that your article cannot be published until you have selected your options in the RightsLink portal. If you do not wish to pay for any options, please decline all offers in the RightsLink portal.
If you have any payment-related enquires please contact: CSIROPublishing.email@example.com
Hybrid journals are subscription journals that offer authors the choice to have their article published under an Open Access licence by paying an Author Publication Fee. CSIRO Publishing does not currently offer waivers or discounts for authors publishing Open Access in a hybrid journal. To learn more visit our Open Access page. Journals allowing such Gold Open Access have an ‘Open Access’ link in the left menu on their homepage. For CSIRO Publishing hybrid journals the Author Publication Fee is:

How can I pay for author charges?
Payments should be made using the web-based RightsLink platform. Once you have clicked on the link in the email from the CCC and created an account with RightsLink, you will have the option to pay by credit/debit card or by invoice. If payment by invoice is selected, the invoice will be emailed to the corresponding author. A receipt of payment will also be sent to the corresponding author.
If a third party, such as your funding body, will pay to make your article Open Access, please forward the email from the CCC to them and ask them to complete the transaction procedure. Alternatively, you may forward the invoice to the appropriate person for payment.
In circumstances where the corresponding author wishes to cancel the payment order and provide alternative funder details (for example, if an author failed to provide funding / grant / institution information in order to secure payment from their funding body or institution, and asks to cancel the order so they can submit this information), CSIRO Publishing will allow the order to be cancelled and a full refund given. A refund will otherwise only be given in exceptional circumstances and will be decided on a case-by-case basis.
In the case an article is retracted from publication, no refund for author payments will be given.
For cancellation/refund enquiries, please contact: CSIROPublishing.firstname.lastname@example.org.
