Publishing in an RSC journal?

The UC Berkeley Library is partnering with the Royal Society of Chemistry to support free Gold Open Access publishing under the RSC’s Gold for Gold initiative.

This program offers voucher codes that enable Berkeley researchers to publish their paper in Royal Society of Chemistry journals free of charge, as a Gold Open Access (OA) article, without paying the normal article publication fee (between £1000 and £2500).

Further details and the application form are available here.

Open Access Publishing Vouchers Available for RSC Journals – 2015

Publish gold open access articles in RSC journals at no charge

The UC Berkeley Library is partnering with the Royal Society of Chemistry to support free Gold Open Access publishing under the RSC’s Gold for Gold initiative.

This program offers voucher codes that enable Berkeley researchers to publish their paper in Royal Society of Chemistry journals free of charge, as a Gold Open Access (OA) article, without paying the normal article publication fee (between £1000 and £2500).

Benefits of Gold OA publishing

Gold Open Access publishing makes electronic versions of papers accessible to readers for free – without any subscriptions or fees.

Removing paywall barriers may increase the visibility of research findings since works are easier to disseminate, easier to find, and easier to read.  Further details about RSC journals and Open Access are available here.

You are eligible if

  • You are affiliated with UC Berkeley or LBNL (e.g., student, staff, faculty) and
  • 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 2015

Get your voucher code

After your article has been accepted for publication by an RSC journal, please complete the form at http://goo.gl/GAUwr to request your Gold for Gold voucher code.

Due to limited numbers, the Library will distribute the voucher codes on a first-come-first-served basis.

Fine print

  • Voucher codes are provided only after your article has been accepted for publication
  • Voucher codes must be used before December 31, 2015

ChemSpider seminar on March 24

RSC ChemSpider Seminar — Managing and Integrating Chemistry on the Internet to Build Community for Chemists

The LBNL Library is hosting a seminar for researchers interested in online collaboration, data storage and curation, data exchange, crowdsourcing, and open access.

This seminar will explore ChemSpider ? a free access service providing a structure centric community for chemists and the richest single source of structure-based chemistry information.

March 24, 2010 ? Wednesday
3:00 p.m. ? 4:30 p.m
Building 50 Auditorium
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Bring your laptop for a hands-on demo session.

**** For UC Berkeley personnel: Please contact Jeffery Loo (JLLoo@lbl.gov) by Monday, March 22, 12:00 p.m. for a visitor pass and shuttle bus directions. A visitor pass is required for entry into the Berkeley Lab by UC Berkeley guests.

ABSTRACT

The increasing availability of free and open access resources for scientists on the internet presents us with a revolution in data availability. The Royal Society of Chemistry hosts ChemSpider, a free access website for chemists built with the intention of building community for chemists.

ChemSpider is an aggregator of chemistry related information, at present over 20 million unique chemical entities linked out to over 300 separate data sources, ChemSpider has taken on the task of both robotically and manually curating publicly available data sources. It is also a public deposition platform where chemists can deposit their own data including novel structures, analytical data, synthesis procedures and host data associated with the growing activities associated with Open Notebook Science.

This presentation will examine chemistry on the internet, the dubious quality of what is available and how the ChemSpider crowdsourced curation platform is fast becoming one of the centralized hubs for resourcing information about chemical entities.

We will also review our efforts to provide free resources for synthesis procedures, spectral data and structure-based searching of the chemistry literature and how chemists can contribute directly to each of these projects. Following the presentation and a question and answer session, a hands on session showing how to search for, curate and deposit data on ChemSpider will be given for interested parties.

SPEAKER

Antony Williams, PhD, is a leader in the domain of free access chemistry. He is the Vice President of Strategic Development at the Royal Society of Chemistry and is the host of ChemSpider, a free online structure centric community for chemists.

ChemSpider began as a hobby project in a basement and went on to become one of the most popular Chemistry websites with the highest quality of data available online. Antony spent over a decade in the commercial scientific software business as Chief Science Officer for ACD/Labs, one of the domain leaders in scientific software. He is an accomplished NMR spectroscopist with over 100 peer-reviewed publications. During his career he was the NMR Technology Leader for the Eastman-Kodak company and has worked in both academia and national government research institutions.

SpringerMaterials Refresh

SpringerMaterials is the world’s largest research platform dedicated to information on materials, their properties and uses – providing access to curated data about 3000+ physical and chemical properties of 250,000+ materials and chemical systems.  Periodic Table and Chemical Structure Search tools enable the researchers to search in an expansive way, and discover related materials for comparison.

Recently, the platform received a total overhaul to make the new site more nimble and user friendly.  A series of new functionalities as well as new content have been added.  Check it out at materials.springer.com.

Enhancements include:

  • interactive tables
  • 3D views on crystal structures
  • a “facet” tool with filters to restrict results to properties, materials discipline or specific databases
  • device-agnostic (responsive) design so that content is now available on tablets, mobile phones, laptops and desktop computers

Encyclopedia of Biological Chemistry

“Understanding every living process-from physiology, to immunology, and genetics-is impossible without a grasp on the basic chemistry that provides its underpinning.  Each article in the work provides an up-to-date snapshot of a given biological chemistry topic, written by experts, as well as suggestions for further readings for students and researcher wishing to go into greater depth.”
