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 http://acsopenaccess.org/.
