ACS Open Access Publication Credits
Flexible support for open access publishing
Our open access publication credits enable authors at your institution to publish their articles open without dipping into their research funding. ACS offers these credits in various packages which allow organizations to cost-effectively support their researchers when they publish open access.
These packages can be purchased even if your institution does not yet have a full ACS Read + Publish agreement with us. This makes it convenient for individual departments to make their own content open access, which can aid in the transition to an institution- or consortium-wide ACS Read + Publish agreement.
Open access credits can also be used to make previously published, older articles open.
