RSC Open Access Experiment: Gold for Gold

Would you like to publish an article with the Royal Society of Chemistry in open access at no additional cost?

In 2013 the Max Planck Society has a subscription license to all RSC journals. With this license, we are receiving several tokens, which will allow articles by MPG-authors to be published in open access on the RSC website without paying the normal Article Publication Fee (APF). This is a new open access ‘experiment’ by the RSC called Gold for Gold.

RSC gives recommendations for open science

The final report of the project “Science as an open enterprise” has been published by the Royal Society of Chemistry in June. The project investigated the use of scientific information. There is a growing amount of scientific data and scientist should take advantage of its potential. The report points some key areas for action out including increased openness, common standards and reusability of published data.
