The Royal Society of Chemistry has launched a new Open Access journal named Nanoscale Advances. It is a collaborative venture between RSC and the National Center for Nanoscience and Technology (NCNST) in Beijing, China.
Authors have a choice of two Creative Commons licences: CC BY or CC BY NC.
For the first two years, RSC is waiving all article processing charges.

- The author is affiliated with a Max Planck Institute and publishes under this affiliation.
- Acceptance date after July 1, 2018.
Royal Society Open Science
It is a gold open access journal by the Royal Society. The journal covers the entire range of science, engineering and mathematics. It offers open peer-review as an option and articles embody open data principles.
It is an online journal that welcomes original, high impact research in cell and developmental biology, molecular and structural biology, biochemistry, neuroscience, immunology, microbiology and genetics.
Each ACS journal has a specific policy on publishing preprints. Details of the respective prior publication policies are available at
Authors are allowed to deposit an initial draft of their manuscript in a preprint service such as ChemRxiv or arXiv prior to submission to the following journals:
- ACS Catalysis
- ACS Central Science
- ACS Nano
- ACS Photonics
- Inorganic Chemistry
- The Journal of Physical Chemistry A
- The Journal of Physical Chemistry B
- The Journal of Physical Chemistry C
- The Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters
- Nano Letters
Prior publication is not allowed:
- Accounts of Chemical Research
- Chemical Reviews
- Journal of the American Chemical Society
Now the Max Planck Society pays the article processing charges centrally for the following new gold open access journals by the Institute of Physics:
- Journal of Physics Communications
- Environmental Research Letters
Max Planck (corresponding) authors can already publish open access at no costs to themselves in the New Journal of Physics.
The publication charges for three further new open access titles from the “Journal of Physics“ series on the topics “Energy“, “Materials“ and “Photonics“ will be funded by the library. However, there are no publication fees for the first 50 articles in these journals.
