3 Reasons to Direct Transfer Your Manuscript from bioRxiv to an ACS Journal

The Editors and staff at ACS Publications, a nonprofit publisher and division of the American Chemical Society, are proud to announce that 12 of the peer-reviewed journals in our biological portfolio are accepting direct transfers of manuscripts and metadata from bioRxiv as of Monday, June 6, 2022.

If you already publish your findings in our journals, we hope this will make that process even easier for you! If you haven’t published in an ACS biological journal recently—or ever—we bet you’ve read one of our articles on PubMed Central or Google Scholar, and hope you’ll read on to learn more.

 

3 Reasons to Publish Your Biological Paper in an ACS Publications Journal

1. ACS Publications is a nonprofit society publisher and a division of the American Chemical Society.

ACS Publications is an experienced publisher with a focus on serving researchers and the scientific community. We do this by:

  • Enlisting practicing researchers from prominent institutions around the world to serve as Editors-in-Chief and other members of our journals’ editorial teams.
  • Employing a high-quality peer-review process developed over more than 140 years of publishing respected scholarly journals.
  • Expediting manuscript processing to deliver decisions and get papers published as quickly as possible.

 

2. ACS has more than 60 years of experience publishing high-quality biological journals.

ACS expanded our engagement with the global community of scientific researchers more than a half century ago. Now we have more than a dozen core biological journals as well as more than 20 multidisciplinary journals and those focused on branches of chemistry that also publish articles about biological research.

 

3. ACS offers authors a variety of publishing options.

Authors who publish with ACS can choose to publish in a hybrid, Plan S-compliant Transformative Journal or in a fully open access journal.

  • Most ACS journals are Transformative Journals, which offer a choice of publishing under the traditional subscription model or under the newer open access model:
    • It’s free to submit and free to publish in an ACS Transformative Journal under the traditional subscription model. That means no author charges, page charges, processing charges or color charges.
    • Once an article is accepted for publication in an ACS Transformative Journal, authors who want to make their article open access—or are required to by their funders—can do so by paying an article publishing charge (APC).
  • ACS also has 12 fully open access journals, including ACS Bio & Med Chem Au, which serves the biological research community. Publishing in these journals also requires paying an APC after article acceptance.

Open Access for everyone – no matter your institution

Recently published in ACS Omega, Organosolv Lignin Improved Thermoplastic Elastomeric Behavior of Polyethylene/Polyisoprene Blend (Ghosh, A: ACS Omega 2022, 7, 10, 8483–8492. DOI: 10.1021/acsomega.1c06062) marks the first publication from a primarily undergraduate institution under an ACS Read + Publish Agreement.

Primarily undergraduate institutions (PUIs) are defined by the National Science Foundation as accredited colleges and universities that award 20 or fewer Ph.D / D.Sci. degrees in NSF-supported fields during two consecutive academic years. As of 2016, there were more than 1,200 PUIs in the United States, employing in excess of 1,000,000 research and teaching staff. While PUIs have a primary focus on instruction, the staff of US-based PUIs nevertheless publish thousands of articles per year.

Read + Publish Agreements offer institutions and consortia full access to ACS content, as well as covering much or all of the publication charges for their researchers in ACS journals. While thousands of researchers in over 400 institutions worldwide are covered by ACS Read + Publish Agreements, Troy University is the first PUI to benefit from this offer.

“Dr Ghosh’s article is just one example of the high-quality research that Troy University, and other PUIs like us, produce,” said Dr Christopher Shaffer, Dean of Library Services at Troy University. “The option of an ACS Read + Publish Agreement, which provided both full access to ACS journals as well as the ability to publish in immediate open access, represents tremendous value. We can ensure that our faculty and students have access to the literature while also reaching the widest possible audience with our research.”

“ACS is committed to open access, and part of that commitment is to provide every chemical researcher the opportunity to publish in ACS journals,” said Sybille Geisenheyner, Director of Open Access Licensing and Strategy for ACS Publications. “Read + Publish Agreements have traditionally been struck with institutions that publish many articles each year, or with consortium groups representing institutions with lower publishing output but who still require broad access to the most trusted chemical literature. However, ACS’ flexible approach allows institutions of all sizes to publish their work in open access with support from their institution. We hope that Troy University is the first of many non research-focused universities to explore the benefits of an ACS Read + Publish Agreement.”

More information on ACS Read + Publish Agreements is available on the ACS Open Science website.

ACS Transformative Journals: another way for Plan S funded authors to publish with ACS

Many researchers whose work is funded by a Plan S signatory now have greater choice in where to publish, as ACS’ subscription journals have recently been awarded Transformative Journal status by cOAlition S – reinforcing our commitment to widening availability of cutting-edge research articles in chemistry and related sciences.

Plan S is an initiative supported by many research funders worldwide, with the goal of accelerating the uptake of open access. Researchers whose work is funded by a Plan S signatory are required to make their research papers publicly available with a broad CC BY reuse license immediately upon publication.

Most Plan S funders have agreed to support costs for their researchers who publish in open access journals, providing these are ‘gold’ OA journals which immediately make research papers freely available to readers, ‘hybrid’ subscription and open access journals that are included in transformational agreements such as ACS Read + Publish Agreements, or Transformative Journals – publications that have committed to becoming fully open access in the future, with clear annual targets for growing the proportion of open articles they publish. Any researcher whose funder’s open access policy is fully aligned with Plan S including the Transformative Journal component can now choose to publish in their preferred ACS journal, and receive funder support until 31 December 2024.

“ACS is committed to furthering sustainable open access in the chemical sciences while also giving authors the greatest amount of choice possible,” said Sybille Geisenheyner, Director of Open Access Strategy and Licensing for ACS Publications. “Transformative Journals put open access within reach for thousands more authors, ensuring a greater proportion of the literature is free for everyone to read and reuse.”

More information is available on the ACS Open Science website.

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.
