Open Access Publishing in Chemistry:
Perspectives from the Royal Society of Chemistry and PCCP
during lunch break on Saturday (27 May)
Within the chemical sciences research community Open Access publishing is gaining traction and growing, in RSC journals in 2016 more than half of German publications were published via a gold Open Access route.
The complex and varied drivers within Open Access, particularly when examined from an international perspective, makes the path ahead uncertain. This talk will present data on Open Access publishing within the chemical science community with a focus on geographical differences, what is driving the change and what the future may hold. It will also discuss the implications for researchers and what the approach of the RSC as a society publisher is.
