The sweat and tears you shed in forging scientific exploration yield the coveted paper. But publishing your discoveries isn’t necessarily the end of the story if you want as many people as possible to make use of your research.
Of course, publishing in open-access journals like ACS Au makes sharing easier as there is no barrier for readers to read and use your work. And Fast Format makes the entire preparation and submission process simpler and quicker.
But the technical process and explanations are not easy to understand for those outside your field of expertise. So how do you explain what you’ve learned to a wider audience?
A visual summary can help you explain your work more easily to more people. And this summer, the ACS Au open-access journal portfolio will make this easier.
If you submit to any ACS Au journal before September 5, 2021, and your paper is subsequently accepted following the usual rigorous ACS peer-review process, then you can choose a FREE infographic or videobyte summary of your article so you can easily explain your research to others.
- An infographic provides a visual snapshot of the background, methodology, and key findings from your study.
- A videobyte summarizes your research with a one-minute video for a lay audience.
You will also receive a free guide on the best ways to share and promote your work using your choice.
There is an open-access ACS Au journal for all aspects of chemical science. See which journal is right for you:
ACS Au journals are fully open access, making them free to read for anyone, anywhere in the world, immediately on publication. This means researchers and others can apply for your work more quickly.
The journals enable this instant global access by assessing an article processing charge (APC) for authors who want or have to make their work open access. Learn more about this charge and the various agreements and programs ACS has with institutions and researchers in low-income countries.
