RSC Publishing 2012 Pricing Announcement

We’ve achieved over 150% growth in international quality content in last three years with 70+ countries contributing published articles. This growth has been supported by well thought out price increases reflective of customer feedback, increases in costs related to the growth in quality content, and changes in the global economy.

We’re well-known at RSC Publishing for delivering high impact content for chemical scientists.

What’s not quite so well known is the significant growth in high quality content we’ve achieved – over 150% growth in the last three years.  Working with our customers and authors, we have embarked on a significant project to increase the volume of quality international content we publish. This growth has been supported by well thought out price increases reflective of customer feedback, increases in costs related to the growth in quality content, and changes in the global economy.

The RSC Publishing Price List 2012 demonstrates this commitment. Please be sure to review the changes in this blog, especially regarding new subscription titles and package changes.

And because we’re part of a learned society and a not-for-profit publisher, you have the reassurance that any surplus we make from our publishing is reinvested back into the scientific community across the globe – funding key projects like ChemSpider, our free chemical structure database.
