Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) is continuing their Gold for Gold program. It offers researchers at participating campuses the opportunity to make their articles gold open access (Gold OA)–free of charge.
- The article (HTML and PDF) will be available on the RSC website, free to any interested reader. No paywalls, no required affiliation with a university or company that has a subscription or license to the journal.
- The fees that RSC normally requires to make the articles Gold OA will be waived.
The Library has a limited number of vouchers, which the authors will “redeem” to waive the fee. To receive a voucher:
- At least one author must be from UCSD, any department or program. Faculty, student, post-doc, etc.
- The article must have been accepted for publication in an RSC journal in 2014. However, we do still have a few vouchers that can be applied toward articles accepted in 2013.
Please contact Teri Vogel if you are interested in obtaining one of vouchers. Please include the title or URL of the article. Once you have a voucher, you will just need to complete a short form on the RSC site, and submit a new License to Publish and select a Creative Commons license (either CC-BY or CC-BY-ND).
16 articles have been made Gold OA since the start of this program, from researchers in Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry, Department of NanoEngineering, Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, Department of Bioengineering, Materials Science & Engineering Program, Department of Pharmacology, and Scripps Institution of Oceanography (click for titles and links).
