New fees at Royal Society hybrid journals

On June 22, the Royal Society will raise the publication fees for its EXiS Open Choice (hybrid OA) journals.  The new prices:

These prices apply from June 22 2007

Proceedings A
Phil Trans A
Notes and Records

First 10 pages: 150 ($278) per journal page. Additional pages above this: 50 ($93) per journal page.

Biology Letters
Interface
Phil Trans B
Proceedings B

First 6 pages: 225 ($416) per journal page. Additional pages above this: 50 ($93) per journal page.

Note that VAT is applicable for this service.

Correction (June 21, 2007). A colleague points out that the new fees represent a significant decrease from last year. For example, compare the prices above with the prices reported in this article from June 2006. My apologies to the RS for not noticing or mentioning that the new fees are lower than the old fees. On the other hand, the RS price announcement doesn't mention this fact either.
