Publish open access at no cost

ACS Publications and the Tokyo University of Science have agreed to partner to explore sustainable models of open access that will advance shared goals for open science and enhance convenience for the Tokyo University of Science author community.

If you are associated with the Tokyo University of Science and are the submitting corresponding author, you may have the opportunity to publish your research in any ACS journal under a CC BY open access license with your institution’s support.

 

Access to all ACS journals

In addition to open access publication benefits, participants in this special agreement will have full-text access to all current ACS Publications journal content.

 

I’m a prospective author, how do I publish open access?

Step 1

Submit your article to the ACS journal of your choice, making sure you are the submitting corresponding author.

Step 2

Ensure your institution affiliation is correct on your profile in the ACS Paragon Plus submission system.

Step 3

Check that your affiliation is stated in the body of the manuscript as the corresponding author’s affiliation.

Step 4

When your manuscript has been accepted for publication, you will be automatically prompted with the option to publish open access under your institution’s agreement.

Step 5

Confirm that “Yes, I wish to publish open access as per the agreement” and complete the Journal Publishing Agreement by clicking the ‘Order Open Access’ button.

Step 6

You will be directed to ACS’ e-commerce partner, Copyright Clearance Center, and will see a screen with your manuscript details. Select the ‘Seek Funding’ button. You will be prompted to log in or create a CCC RightsLink account (please note, this is a separate account to the one you have used for Paragon Plus). Once you have confirmed your manuscript and address details, check the ‘I have accepted the terms and condition’ box, and then select the ‘Submit for Approval’ button.

Step 7

Your institution will be alerted to your open access funding request. If the request is approved, your article will be made immediately available as open access upon publication under a Creative Commons CC BY 4.0 license. There are no charges to pay and no further action required by either you or your institution.
