The Electrochemical Society and Open Access

The Electrochemical Society is taking down the paywall during the Open Access Week (October 22-28) from the entire ECS Digital Library.

ECS is celebrating International Open Access Week by giving the world a preview of what complete open access to peer-reviewed scientific research will look like.

All ECS journals are included in our subscription and Max Planck authors are eligible to use the ECS Plus Open Access option without payment of article charges.

We are celebrating the International Open Access Week with an information desk in the library. Therefor we have prepared some material including brochures, flyers and a poster on article processing charges for open access publications.

There is the possibility to watch the documentary Paywall: The Business of Scholarship which focuses on the need for open access to research and science on the big screen on Thursday.

We gladly provide you support regarding publishing in open access journals [internal] and open access repositories, with a focus on PuRe.

New Open Access Journal by RSC

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.
