No author's fee for ACS journals
For the next five years (2017–2021), new articles will be published open access when submitted by corresponding authors affiliated with a UMC. Individual researchers will not be subject to any additional costs.
For 2016, ACS has issued Open Access vouchers to corresponding authors affiliated with a UMC. If a researcher does not use a voucher, the voucher may be transferred to another researcher and it will retain its value. From 2017, the voucher system will no longer be necessary.
