Enabling Next-Generation Research

One key to staying ahead of competitors is making sure researchers can access the newest, most novel research. ACS Publications boasts some of the fastest times to publication in scientific publishing. The ongoing introduction of Letters-format journals has allowed ACS Publications to shorten the time from submission to publication to as little as 4 weeks. Our As Soon As Publishable (ASAP) program makes the version of record of every article available days after the article's acceptance, so an author's work does not need to wait for an issue to publish. This brings authors’ work rapid exposure and gives the scientific community access to valuable information faster than ever before.
