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.
