This year the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) is continuing their Gold for Gold program. It offers researchers at participating campuses the opportunity to make their RSC 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 will receive 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. Faculty, student, post-doc, etc.
- The article must be accepted (not just submitted) or very recently published, like last 2-3 months.
Please contact Teri Vogel if you have an accepted or recently published article and want to make it Gold OA.
These were the 9 UCSD publications made Gold OA in 2013, from researchers in the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry, Department of NanoEngineering, Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, Materials Science & Engineering Program, and Scripps Institution of Oceanography.
