ACS Omega Celebrates Open Access Week 2019

To celebrate Open Access Week 2019, October 21-27, ACS  Publications would like to highlight those authors who publish heavily in ACS Omega.

ACS Omega features fast acceptance and publishing rates to get your research in front of a broader audience! Check out the authors below to learn about their research and their reasons for choosing to publish ACS Omega.

Dr. Kotohiro Nomura, Tokyo Metropolitan University

What is your research focus?

The design of molecular catalysts for efficient carbon-carbon bond formation and chemospecific organic transformations.

Why do you choose to publish open access in ACS Omega?

Due to the quick publication times and the useful transfer system in ACS Omega, we often choose this journal to publish open access. ACS Omega is a good, highly visible journal with careful reviewing. Its good publications system lets us concentrate on submitting more papers.

Professor Katja Loos, University of Groningen

What is your research focus?

Our main research interests are currently focused on the design, synthesis, and characterization of novel tailor-made macromolecules as well as on the development of sustainable, eco-efficient, and competitive production methods of polymeric materials. By utilizing modern polymer synthesis techniques, including biocatalysis and other controlled polymerization methods, our research aims to expand fundamental scientific knowledge towards advanced technologies.

Why do you choose to publish open access in ACS Omega?

Our research is mostly publicly funded, and I feel that the results should be available for everybody who is interested. If a paper disappears behind a paywall some researchers, especially those from countries that are not very rich, will lag behind. I am therefore also very happy about the agreement that ACS has with The Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VNSU)w, which allows us to make our manuscripts open access.

The fact that ACS Omega is a not-specialized journal makes it very attractive to read and also to publish. Our manuscripts get mixed with other topics and can have a higher impact like this. Of course the fast speed towards a decision by the editors is also an argument why we choose ACS Omega more often.
