American Chemical Society and the Polish Academic Consortium sign transformative OA agreement -

The Publications Division of the American Chemical Society (ACS) has signed a transformative ‘read and publish’ agreement with the Polish Academic Consortium. The agreement, which lasts through 2022, will benefit 51 institutions across Poland and will enable hundreds of articles to be made open access each year.

Under the terms of this agreement, researchers at universities across Poland will be able to publish under the most liberal of open access licenses, CC-BY. They will also benefit from a highly streamlined process aligning their journal article to the article publication charges covered by this agreement. Researchers at participating institutions will also have access to the over 65 premier journals published by ACS.

In the last year, ACS has supported the growing global interest in open access agreements and to date has partnered with more than 350 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 Polish Academic Consortium is coordinated by the Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematical and Computational Modelling (ICM) at the University of Warsaw within the framework of the Virtual Library of Science program, subsidised by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education. The program originated in the 90s and enables access to key international scientific resources for the Polish academic community, and supports open access and the implementation of Plan S in Poland.
