"The Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) and Lyrasis have entered into an open access publishing agreement to accelerate momentum toward global open access scholarship. This partnership is one of the first and largest library consortium-based open access agreements with RSC in the United States to date.

This groundbreaking agreement enables all corresponding authors affiliated with participating academic institutions to publish open access (OA) in more than 40 RSC scholarly journals, both fully OA and hybrid, with no publishing fees or limits on OA articles published. The agreement also provides reading access to the full RSC Gold package of 50-plus scholarly journals. Authors who publish OA under this agreement can publish under a CC BY or CC BY-NC open license.

Twenty-two institutions representing more than 38,000 faculty and 325,000 students have opted into the agreement for 2024. Participating Lyrasis members range from large research institutions to liberal arts colleges and regional universities, signaling the broad benefits of these innovative deals. These 22 institutions publish an average of 175 scholarly articles with RSC per year...."
