Open Access Publishing Vouchers – Royal Society of Chemistry Journals

The UC Berkeley Library is partnering with the Royal Society of Chemistry to support free Gold Open Access publishing under the RSC’s Gold for Gold initiative.This program offers voucher codes that enable Berkeley researchers to publish their paper in Royal Society of Chemistry journals free of charge, as a Gold Open Access (OA) article, without paying the normal article publication fee.

Benefits of Gold OA publishing

Gold Open Access publishing makes electronic versions of papers accessible to readers for free – without any subscriptions or fees. Removing paywall barriers may increase the visibility of research findings since works are easier to disseminate, easier to find, and easier to read.
