GDCh and Open Access

The Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker (German Chemical Society) published a position paper on the future of scientific publishing and the transformation to Open Access. It recommends its authors the green open access model. This means to archive articles that are published in conventional journals in institutions’ own e-print archives (e.g. MPG PuRe) allowing free access.
