Open Access Policy

The Journal Digital Landscape Architecture JoDLA implements the policy of open access publication after a double-blind peer review process through a highly international team of seasoned professionals for quality assurance. Special emphasis is put on actively supporting young professionals through formative reviews of their submissions. Only English language contributions are published.

Contributions are published under a cc by-nd license.


Organisation and production of the Journal Digital Landscape Architecture JoDLA include the review process, editorial work, production process and technical infrastructure. The editors-in-chief, the editorial board as well as the publisher promote the Journal Digital Landscape Architecture. All reviewers work on a voluntary basis.

Administration, editorial and layout work, printing, as well as English language proofreading create costs. In order to maintain our high standard of quality, the following conditions apply:

  • Contribution of authors for publication costs

The author’s fee for the publication is currently 400 Euros for the standard 8 pages of print with the option of publishing up to XX extra pages for 50 Euros per additional page. Each group of authors receives one free copy.


  • Reduced participation fee for authors as speakers at DLA conferences.

Positively evaluated authors or co-authors are also invited by the local chair of the next DLA conference to present their paper at the conference. The time and format of the presentation may vary because of thematic concept of each DLA conference. We argue for live presentations with as few parallel sessions as possible.

The DLA conference fees for the presenting authors are reduced.

Please request formal invitation letters if you need them when applying for funding at your institute.

Speakers need to register for the conference separately.
