Publish Open Access with the American Chemical Society

The Max Planck Society has established a new open access agreement with the American Chemical Society which covers open access publishing of all accepted articles by submitting corresponding Max Planck authors in ACS journals that offer a Creative Commons Attribution license (CC-BY); under the agreement, the article processing charges will be paid centrally by the MPS.

The agreement also covers read access to the ACS “All Publications” Package and Chemical & Engineering News (C&EN).

To publish open access without having to pay Article Publication Charges (APCs), the following criteria must be met:

  • The acceptance date of the article must be after Jan 1, 2019.
  • The author must publish under the Max Planck affiliation which must also be stated in the published article.
  • The author must be the submitting and corresponding author of the article.
  • Authors must actually submit the article from their Max Planck e-mail address and be the one to communicate with ACS during the production process.

Please be advised that ACS uses the Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) for their workflow. If you don’t have an account, the library can order OA for your article.

Coalition S – Implementation

The cOAlition S has released an implementation guidance on Plan S. Eleven European research funding organizations published Plan S in September 2018. It defines ten principles for the transition by 2020 to open access.

The main roads for Plan S are:

  • Publication in Open Access Journals or Platforms;
  • Deposit of Versions of Record (VoR) or Author Accepted Manuscript (AAM) in Open Access repositories without embargo;
  • Publication in ‘hybrid’ journals only under transformative agreements;

For the deposition of scholarly content in open access repositories: Preprint servers are not suffucient to be compliant.
