The UBC Library has obtained voucher codes that UBC researchers can use to publish Royal Society of Chemistry papers via RSC Gold’s Open Access option free of charge in 2014. This could result in a savings from $1300 to over $3000. The Gold for Gold initiative rewards all institutions that subscribe to RSC Gold with voucher codes to make papers available freely available online, thereby helping researchers to increase the visibility and impact of their research.
More information about how the project works can be found the RSC voucher FAQ here. Once you’re paper has been accepted and you have received your voucher code, you can make use of the RSC Gold for Gold Application.
Please contact Kevin Lindstrom to acquire a voucher code for your forthcoming RSC Gold publication.
