The UC Berkeley Library is partnering with the Royal Society of Chemistry to support free Open Access publishing under the RSC’s Gold for Gold initiative.
But you must act soon: the Gold for Gold program will only continue until March 2017.
The program offers voucher codes that enable Berkeley researchers to publish their papers in Royal Society of Chemistry journals free of charge, as Gold Open Access (OA) articles, without paying the normal article publication fee (between £1000 and £2500).
You are eligible if:
- You are a UC Berkeley affiliate (faculty, staff, or student)
- Your article is new and has been accepted for publication by RSC (i.e., vouchers cannot be used for articles that have already been published) and
- You have not previously received a Gold for Gold voucher from the UC Berkeley Library in 2016
The application form is available at http://goo.gl/GAUwr, and as noted above, vouchers must be used by March 2017.
