The American Chemical Society (ACS) and the Norwegian Directorate for ICT and Joint Services in Higher Education and Research (UNIT) have announced a landmark ‘read and publish’ agreement to advance open access publication by researchers at the consortium’s nine member institutions.
The agreement will run through the end of 2022, creating the potential for 100% of articles published by researchers in affiliated universities to be available open access. Through this collaboration, article publication charges for researchers at affiliated universities will be fully covered, and the authors will additionally benefit from a seamless online workflow solution created jointly by ACS and the Copyright Clearance Center, and from the most liberal of open access licenses, CC BY.
ACS has responded to growing global interest in open access agreements by partnering with over 350 institutions in 17 countries. ACS continues to provide researcher-centric solutions — programs that have been designed to stimulate participation in open access publication with its global community of authors, researchers and members.
UNIT (the Norwegian Directorate for ICT and Joint Services in Higher Education and Research) manages, develops, maintains and operates student information and research information systems and services on behalf of the Norwegian higher education sector and Norwegian research communities, such as national research institutes and health care institutions.
