RSC (Royal Society of Chemistry)

Umeå University researchers can publish open access at no cost in the Royal Society of Chemistry journals. Read more about the terms of our agreement with the publisher for 2023 and what it means for you here.

The open access publishing fee has been pre-paid through an agreement between the library and the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC). The agreement applies to open access publishing in hybrid journals (RSC Gold Collection) and the open access journal RSC Advances. The open access journal Nanoscale Advances is not included in the agreement.

Terms and conditions

  • You must be the corresponding author, i.e., the one handling communication with the publisher and journal.
  • Your Umeå University affiliation must be stated in the published article.
  • Use your university e-mail ending with @umu.se. The e-mail domain is often used to recognize your eligibility. 
  • For the journal RSC Advances, the agreement applies to articles with a 2023 acceptance date.
  • Your article will be published under a CC BY or CC BY-NC license.
