The Max Planck Society supports SciPost Physics Journals. SciPost is an open access platform being managed by researchers and completely free of charge for readers and authors. Preprint handling and circulation occurs through arXiv, it’s a so called „overlay journal“.
Journal of the European Optical Society-Rapid Publications is now part of SpringerOpen.
The Max Planck Society has a central agreement with Springer. Therefore, all articles from MPS authors (corresponding author) accepted by SpringerOpen journals are centrally paid by the Max Planck Society.
The RSC journal RSC Advances will move to gold open access in January 2017. The journal was launched in 2011 and covers all areas of the chemical sciences.
The article processing charges will be discounted for the first two years.
