Articles, in French or English, focus on ecology, biology, systematics and conservation of continental Molluscs. MalaCo publishes original work as well as news, short notes and practical tools for species identification.

Hoping to publish your work soon,

  1. Maybe be they do discuss page charges, but only in French.

  2. Another open-access malacology journal is Mollusca:
    (the former Malakologische Abhandlungen). And they have no page charges. I am about to submit a ms to them.
