Simply Said...

"If you have an apple and I have an apple, and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea, and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas."
- George Bernard Shaw

Publish in RSC Journals?

Gold for Gold is a program from the Royal Society of Chemistry that enables researchers to publish their paper in RSC journals free of charge, as a Gold Open Access (OA) article, without paying the normal Article Publication Fee (APF).  Publishing open access articles increases the visibility of the research by making it freely available to everyone.

MU Libraries have Gold OA voucher codes to distribute for articles published by MU authors in the RSC journals.  Normally it costs around $2,400 to publish an open access article in the RSC journals.

Janice Dysart, Science Librarian, oversees the dissemination of MU’s Gold for Gold voucher codes to MU authors.

Complete the following steps to receive an OA voucher for your RSC article:

  1. Submit articles to the Royal Society of Chemistry in the normal way.
  2. When you receive notification from the RSC that your article has been accepted, contact Janice Dysart, MU’s representative for RSC’s Gold for Gold Open Access program.  She will provide you with a Gold for Gold voucher code.
  3. Fill out the Gold for Gold online acceptance form. Enter the Gold for Gold voucher code in the appropriate box on the form.

For additional information see the RSC Gold for Gold program page or contact Janice Dysart.
