The Royal Society of Chemistry has provided 18 vouchers for 2014 which cover the Article Processing Charge (APC) for the Gold route to open access. These vouchers can be used for RSC papers accepted for publication in 2014, and are valid until the end of 2014.
Vouchers will be allocated by the Chemistry Librarian on a first-come-first-served basis, subject to confirmation by the applicant that no other funding is available, e.g. from the University’s Open Access fund (authors should check before applying for a voucher at https://www.openaccess.cam.ac.uk/) or another source. At least one of the authors should be a current member of academic staff of the University.
There is a procedure that authors should follow to request and obtain the vouchers, which is outlined on the Chemistry Library’s website here: http://www-library.ch.cam.ac.uk/open_access/gold_for_gold.html.
Papers made open access through the Gold for Gold scheme will be listed on the Chemistry Library website and publicised on this blog.
