As we prepare to celebrate the 8th International Open Access week from 23-29 October 2017, it is an opportunity to highlight the benefits of Open Access and what it means for the RSC Advances research community…
We have published over 5600 open access articles so far in 2017, all of which are freely available to read on our website!
Open access refers to the free and permanent unrestricted online access to scholarly research and aims to maximise the visibility of research.
RSC Advances provides a high quality, open access option that helps get our authors’ work the attention that it deserves. Community-led, with an international team of associate editors, a dedicated reviewer panel and features such as article-based publishing, RSC Advances has been gold open access since January 2017, with one of the lowest article processing charges in the industry.
We deliberately push the boundaries with RSC Advances, always looking for new and unique ways to make the scientific developments we publish accessible to the widest possible audience.
See below for a sample of some of these articles that can be read for free, starting with our 5000th published article this year!
