What are the Benefits of Institutionally Sponsored Open Access?

ACS Transformative Agreements, set up between ACS and an institution (or consortium), provide authors — and administrators — with the easiest process to publish open access, while maintaining authors’ full access to the ACS publications portfolio of journals and Chemical & Engineering News.

Hundreds of academic institutions around the world have now signed agreements with ACS, with new agreements being reached regularly. ACS Transformative Agreements are a sustainable approach to helping institutions accelerate the pace of open access publishing by their researchers. Other benefits include:

  • Accelerating the rate of open access publishing and removing administrative and APC barriers so authors can experience a seamless publishing experience
  • A more efficient workflow with automation – powered by a workflow program (CCC’s RightsLink) used by STM publishers, saving authors and administrators time.
