    I really appreciate your effort to make a user friendly site.
    I am a M.S student at Amirkabir university of Technology(AUT) and during my research there is a great need of new articles, but unfortunately I can not afford buying these articles.
    It would be your generosity if there are more free-articles.

    I see you have removed free access to journals between 1997 and 2007. As neither myself nor my employer have £7000 a year to spare. My access to RSC journals is severely curtailed.
    Considering the cost of the annual subscription to the RSC this is not a good level of free access to the RSC journals.

  19. Dear Nigel

    Thank you so much for your feedback. Due to the continued customer feedback relating to the overlap of content with RSC free access content and the product – RSC Journals Archive, we have now reviewed this content to better suit our customers’ needs.

    The original inclusion of journal articles from the years of 1997 – 2007 will now no longer be available on the free access content model as these overlapped with the RSC Journals Archive. To counteract this update, we will continue to give free access to articles by making the first issue of each volume of RSC journals dating back to 2000 available. This gives our customers and users continued access to high impact scientific research content through IP registration, RSC membership and an RSC Publishing Platform account.

    Rich Blount will be contacting you directly about this and see if there any consortia deals which you may benefit from or if he can help further.

  21. [...] in 2012, your article is free to access forever*? The Royal Society of Chemistry has updated its free access content, meaning that all of RSC Advances’ articles published in 2011 and 2012 will be free to [...]

    New definitions of the words like forever, in perpetuity, endlessly, and always now mean until the owner changes his/her mind. October 26 2011 the Society “announced that its world-famous historical journal archive – which includes the first ever peer-reviewed scientific journal – has been made permanently free to access online.”

    Libraries everywhere made the titles available to their users through their catalogs and A to Z lists and now – OH, OOPS, all gone! Oh except for one title. Thanks very much.
