Abstract: A study of 34 journals in astronomy and astrophysics looked at the relationship between journal page charges and the length of articles published. Although some writers contend that page charges encourage contributors to write shorter articles, there was no correlation between page charges and the length of articles published. American journals with relatively high impact factors were more likely to have page charges, but there was no overall correlation between impact factor and either page charges or article length.
