The Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) recognizes that researchers are often being asked to publish Open Access (OA), but do not have the funding to pay for it directly.
To continue to support the funder-led evolution to Gold OA, and following successful feedback to a UK pilot program, RSC's Gold for Gold initiative now rewards all institutions in North America that subscribe to RSC Gold with vouchers to make papers available via OA, free of charge. Gold for Gold ensures academics can further increase the visibility of their quality research, while raising their institution's reputation.
As a subscribing institution to RSC's Gold Package, the Stanford University Libraries have a limited number vouchers to offer Stanford researchers for OA publishing on a first-come/first-serve basis. Each voucher code can be used to publish a communication, full paper, or review under the RSC’s Gold Open Access option.
