Making science open for everyone

ACS Publications is a long-term and committed supporter of open science. From preprints and open access publication options through to transparent peer review and open data, we support institutions, funders, and researchers in making the results of their work accessible to all.

Important Update! As of March 2023, more than 1,000 individual institutions are supported by ACS transformative "read and publish" agreements. This represents nearly 30% of academic journal subscribers. Find out if your institution participates.
