ACS Read and Publish Agreement

VIVA has started a new Read & Publish agreement with the American Chemical Society (ACS) on January 1, 2024. All participating institutions will now have read access to more than 70 journals in the ACS All Publications package, which represents a dramatic expansion of content for many private institutions. Corresponding authors at participating institutions will also be able to publish journal articles open access at no cost. Participating institutions have access to a CCC RightsLink institutional portal to manage funding requests. We highly recommend institutions turn on automatic approvals within the Billing Profiles menu to avoid having to manually approve each funding request.

Participating Institutions: All public and private institutions.

Author Resources: Author resources for publishing OA are available here:
