Open Access Pricing

Article Publishing Charges (APCs) for ACS AuthorChoice open access are highly competitive, with discounts and flexible options, such as 12-month embargoed open access for a reduced cost. ACS Read + Publish Agreements enable authors to publish open access without directly paying APCs, while retaining full access to subscribed content.
