New open access deal with Royal Society of Chemistry

13 August 2019

We are pleased to announce that the Royal Society of Chemistry and the University of Groningen have reached a new Read and Publish agreement. The agreement provides reading access to 40 RSC journals (including five new journals: Nanoscale Horizons, Reaction Chemistry & Engineering, Molecular Systems Design & Engineering, Sustainable Energy & Fuels, Materials Chemistry Frontiers) and allows UG/UMCG-affiliated submitting authors to publish open access at no additional cost in this list of RSC journals (PDF). The agreement is valid for 2019, with an option for renewal in 2020.

In order to claim the fee waiver, it is key that authors use their UG/UMCG email account during the submission process. Failure to do so will result in the publisher not recognizing their affiliation and not applying the waiver.

All eligible UG/UMCG articles published in 2019 before the agreement came into place will optionally be converted to open access retrospectively by RSC. Details about the workflow for the conversion will follow in due course.

For questions about the agreement, please contact openaccess rug.nl or openaccess umcg.nl.
