American Chemical Society and King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in deal to increase advance open access publishing -

The Publications Division of the American Chemical Society (ACS) has signed an agreement with Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) to increase open access publishing by the university’s scientists, its first agreement advancing open science in the region. The partnership will last through 2022.

Under the terms of the agreement, researchers affiliated with KAUST will receive full article publishing charge support to publish open access in any of ACS’ more than 65 premiere journals. Articles will be made open with a CC-BY license, the most liberal of open access licenses, and researchers will also benefit from a streamlined workflow solution that simplifies the open access licensing and approvals process. As a part of the agreement, KAUST will also benefit from online access to all ACS journals and Chemical & Engineering News.

ACS supports the growing global interest in open access and has partnered across 17 countries and with over 300 institutions worldwide. ACS continues to provide researcher-centric solutions — programs designed to stimulate participation in open access publication across the global community of authors, researchers and ACS members.

The KAUST University Library works with publishers and societies and negotiates innovative ways to strengthen the KAUST open access policy, supplement the KAUST research repository and increase the impact of KAUST research publications with widespread availability throughout the world.
