What does it mean to be diamond open access?

Chemical Science is an innovative journal made up of people who are passionate about chemistry. We are always thinking of new ways to support you and build upon our purpose – to help the chemical science community make the world a better place.

To aid this mission, we believe that opening up research to everyone is crucial. The work we publish is impactful. It can inspire new discoveries, change how people look at the planet, and challenge standard thinking. Everyone deserves to have access to this research as it could benefit us all, and this is why Chemical Science has been open access since 2015.

We also take things one step further. Our diamond open access policy means that you can publish in Chemical Science for free. The submission process remains the same as any other Royal Society of Chemistry journal. We cover any article processing charges if your work is accepted, so you can make an impact without any barriers.

This is ChemSci’s back story, and why we publish your research diamond open access.
