Publish in RSC (Royal Society of Chemistry) via Open Access, Free of Charge

Gold for Gold

RSC’s (Royal Society of Chemistry) Gold for Gold Initiative: Renewed for 2016!

Gold for Gold is an innovative experiment from RSC Publishing that enables researchers to publish their paper in RSC journals free of charge, as a Gold Open Access (OA) article, without paying the normal Article Publication Fee (APF).  As a subscribing institution to the RSC, UCLA currently has 17 vouchers to offer researchers for OA publishing on a first-come/first-serve basis.

Each voucher code can be used to publish a communication, full paper, or review under the RSC’s Gold OA option.

If you would like one of these vouchers or more information about this program, please contact an SEL Librarian.
