Springer Nature has expanded its portfolio of open access journals:
Communications Chemistry: www.nature.com/commschem
Communications Physics: www.nature.com/commsphys
The journals will be online-only and publish open access content under a CC-BY license. They are now open for submissions.
The ChemRxiv preprint server is open for submissions. It is now available in a fully functioning beta version. The American Chemical Society, Royal Society of Chemistry and German Chemical Society (GDCh), as well as other not-for-profit groups and scientific publishers, gave support to create a place for chemists to share early results and data before formal peer review.
Authors can submit preprints in various file formats that will automatically assigned with a digital object identifier. ChemRxiv will also link the final published version of articles with preprints.
Elsevier launched its own chemistry preprint server named Chemistry Research Network (ChemRN) in August, too.
With its constantly growing index, oaFindr is the world’s largest curated open access discovery platform, offering access to more than 25 million articles published in peer-reviewed journals.
The full oaFindr collection is now available to Max Planck researchers at: https://oafindr.1science.com/
