PeerJ has announced five new open access journals in chemistry. The submission is already open and the new journals will launch with an extended period of free APC fees.
PeerJ offers an interesting open access business model, so authors pay for a lifetime publishing plan. The Max Planck Society covers the cost of an “Enhanced Publication Plan” for all Max Planck authors. The membership remains yours for life, even if you leave Max Planck Society. You will be identified by PeerJ based on your Max Planck email address. Alternatively, one-time APCs for Max Planck corresponding authors will be covered.
