Our ACS Au journals each serve a specific research community, publishing the latest in their fields with no barriers to access. Learn more about the unique offerings of each journal and browse key research highlights across the portfolio.
ACS Publications is home to a diverse portfolio of more than 80 peer-reviewed journals, from fully open access publications to hybrid journals offering a mix of open access and subscription-based content. Among these is our ACS Au family of journals, a series of fully open access publications led by Editor-in-Chief Dr. Shelley Minteer.
Find the Best Path for Your Research
We consider the ACS Au titles to be ‘community journals’ in that they each serve a specific research community with a clear scope, publish the latest research in their fields with no barriers to access, and provide a forum for likeminded researchers to connect across disciplines.

Each ACS Au journal is completely open access, meaning articles reach the widest possible audience. They provide a trusted and highly visible route to publication for authors who wish or need to publish their original research in fully open access journals. You can find out more about the ACS Au journals here.
The ACS Au journals opened for submissions in late 2020, and since then, they have published more than 900 original articles. We invite you to read key research highlights from the journals’ first three years below.
