New York City College of Technology has a new open access publishing agreement with the American Chemical Society

While City Tech Library has had a subscription to ACS Publications for several years, we’re happy to share that our agreement with the American Chemical Society now allows CUNY authors to publish open access with no additional charges.

What does this mean? CUNY authors who submit manuscripts to an ACS publication will, after acceptance of their manuscript, be given the option to make their article available open access at no extra cost upon publication. Open access publishing sometimes incurs an additional charge to the author (an article processing charge or APC); this new agreement with ACS removes that fee for CUNY authors.

This agreement only applies to submitting corresponding authors who are affiliated with institutions listed on the agreement details page. See a full list of eligible ACS publications at this link.

This new publishing arrangement provides more City Tech faculty with options to share their research immediately upon publication and meet funder requirements for open access.
