Why is the APC set to 2200 dollars?

There are many costs involved in the production of a paper. The Oikos Editorial Office uses several service providers in order to publish our journals: ScholarOne (manuscript handling), Deanta (type setter), DataDryad (data deposition), Wiley (publication platform), as well as staff at the office itself, who runs the day-to-day office tasks, like emailing authors, communication with editors, reviewers, copy editing, proof reading, etc. The APC has been chosen at a level that can cover all these costs, without a goal of making a profit.
