How can PCCP take your research further?
As a leading title in physical chemistry, PCCP gives you the opportunity to choose open access for your publications and make a greater impact globally. The PCCP Owner Societies – 19 chemistry, physical chemistry and physics societies from around the world – give further credibility to this journal’s open access publishing practices. We make it easier for you to reach and influence a wider readership, including those outside of academia.
PCCP has been recognised by cOAlition S as a Transformative Journal, which recognises our commitment to open access. Over the next few years, we will be transitioning to become a fully open access journal, while ensuring you have an exceptional publishing experience.
In this blog post, we will explain how PCCP and open access can transform the potential of your research and help you gain the recognition you deserve.
The benefits of open access
Open access publishing is the key to building a fairer, more equitable society. One where everyone can explore and benefit from discoveries, including researchers, funders, policymakers and the general public. Simply, it refers to the free, permanent and unrestricted online access to scholarly research for readers.
Open access can unlock your potential to make a bigger impact globally. We encourage you to choose this option for your next PCCP publication as it can significantly increase the discoverability of your work. Research tells us that open access publications in general are downloaded more than subscription-only content.
Other benefits of open access include:
- better collaboration and career opportunities
- making your work available outside academia
- promoting fairness and inclusivity in the scientific community
- boosting your citation potential
