ACS Publications and ChronosHub Launch ACS Journal Finder

ACS Publications has a long history of supporting the open science movement. As part of that commitment, we’ve ensured that every one of ACS Publications’ peer-reviewed journals includes open access publishing options. As more funders and research institutions encourage researchers to publish their work via an open access license, authors must be able to meet funder or institutional requirements. That’s why ACS Publications has partnered with ChronosHub to launch the new ACS Journal Finder website.

As the open access space evolves, different authors may have different publication needs. This site is one of the ways ACS Publications supports our authors and customers in making an easy transition to open access publishing. The ACS Journal Finder offers a simplified user experience that will help authors check all ACS Publications journals for compliance with a wide variety of institutional and funder open access mandates.

The site also makes it easy to see if an institution has a transformative agreement in place with ACS Publications. These agreements allow affiliated researchers to publish their work in an ACS Publications journal at no additional cost to themselves. To date, ACS has partnered with hundreds of institutions in more than 22 countries around the world, with new agreements added regularly.

ACS Journal Finder also allows authors to filter journals by a variety of criteria, including:

  • 15 different scientific subject areas, including chemistry, chemicals engineering, materials science, and more
  • Citations databases where a journal is indexed, such as SCOPUS, Web of Science, and DOAJ
  • Open access license type offered
  • Journal open access type
  • Article processing charge
  • Manuscript embargo length

The new site is free to use and will be updated regularly with the latest information on journal licenses, funder requirements, and transformative agreements.
