ACS Author Rewards scheme



Through the ACS Author Rewards scheme the ACS provides publishing credits directly to each Corresponding Author of each article published in 2014.

The ACS awards publishing credits, worth a total value of $1,500 per article published in 2014, and authors use credits to fund any ACS open access publishing option within the next three years. Credits are also transferable to another author.

Other ACS open access programs include ACS Central Science (a new journal free to authors and readers), ACS Editor’s Choice (free public access to research of interest), and ACS Author Choice (expanded open access publishing options for authors and their sponsors).

To find out more about all of these ACS open access programs (there are Q&A about each one, plus a video and webinar overviews of them all) please visit

Gold for Gold voucher allocated


Another of the 18 Gold for Gold vouchers that the Royal Society of Chemistry has given to the University of Cambridge has been used to make the following article immediately open access:

The derivative discontinuity of the exchange–correlation functional, Paula Mori-Sánchez and Aron J. Cohen. Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys., 2014. Advance Article. DOI:10.1039/C4CP01170H, Perspective.!divAbstract

UK University Presses partner with Kudos to help authors maximize article impact

An interesting development at a time when interest in the impact of research is becoming increasingly important.


Edinburgh University Press, Liverpool University Press and Policy Press at the University of Bristol have announced a new partnership with Kudos, a start-up service designed to help researchers and their institutions and funders measure, monitor and maximize the visibility and impact of their published articles.

Launched in 2014, the Kudos platform provides a new way for authors to use social media to engage the digital community with their research.

By creating ‘profiles’ for their published articles, and adding short titles, lay summaries and impact statements, authors can make their articles more engaging for a digital readership accustomed to strategically browsing the millions of potential papers at their fingertips.

A Kudos-led survey of almost 4,000 researchers from a range of subject disciplines revealed that 85% of responders thought that more could be done to raise the visibility, impact and usage of their work. Crucially 80% felt, given sufficient tools…
