ETH Library assumes Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) open access publishing fees

As of now, scientists from ETH Zurich can publish open access in Royal Society of Chemistry journals free of charge.

This is on condition that the corresponding author of the paper submitted be employed at ETH Zurich. His or her ETH Zurich email address must be provided when transferring the manuscript (external link). This applies to all Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) journals except RSC Advances.

The agreement with RSC is the first read & publish contract for ETH Zurich. It blends electronic access to all RSC journals with the option of publishing open access in a combined contract model. This signifies a key step for ETH Zurich as regards implementing the swissuniversities national open access strategy (external link).
