As of January 2024, thousands more faculty and students throughout Latin America have complete access to ACS journals, and the ability to publish open access without cost, through five new ACS read and publish agreements.

Covering four institutions in Mexico and one in Colombia, the agreements provide full reading access to more than 70 hybrid journals, and full coverage of open access article publishing charges for affiliated authors when their articles are published in any ACS journal. These institutions are:

“We’re very happy to extend read and publish coverage to these important universities,” says Franklin Moreno, Latin America Market & Business Development Manager at ACS Publications. “These agreements make it even easier for researchers to make their work available to the broadest possible audience, while also being able to stay up to date with the latest publications in chemistry and related sciences from around the world.”

These institutions join Instituto Tecnologico de Costa Rica, Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla (BUAP), and Universidad de Sonora to increase the coverage of read and publish agreements in Latin America; and a growing list of over 1,000 organizations participating in ACS read and publish agreements.
