"The Publications Division of the American Chemical Society (ACS) is pleased to announce that it is sponsoring open access publication for corresponding authors at qualifying primarily undergraduate institutions (PUIs). “Overnight, this program makes it possible for researchers at 114 institutions to publish their work in ACS journals, open access, at no additional cost to the researcher or the library,” says James Baldini, vice president of global sales, business operations and analytics at ACS Publications. “We are excited to generate awareness of this program so that authors at PUIs can immediately begin enjoying the benefits of sponsored open publication with ACS.” ...
The program is available to any PUI that doesn’t offer graduate degrees in the sciences and that subscribes to the journal section of the ACS All Publications Package. This offer lasts the duration of the institution’s subscription, with no limit on the number of research articles that can be published open access during that time.
