We recognize that researchers are often being asked to publish Open Access (OA), but do not have the funding to pay for it directly.
To support the funder-led evolution to Gold OA our Gold for Gold initiative rewards all institutions that subscribe to RSC Gold with voucher codes to make papers available via OA, free of charge.
Gold for Gold ensures academics can further increase the visibility of their quality research, whilst raising their institution's reputation.
Subject-based repository that will make it easier for researchers to find and share relevant journal articles and data from a single point of access
The repository, will point to the Article of Record as the primary source. It will make open access versions of the article available when any embargo period expires. .
Authors will have to opt-in for automatic deposition, but this author service will allow them to easily fulfill their obligations to their funders, if mandated to do so.
The Clearinghouse for the Open Research of the United States (CHORUS) is a not-for-profit public-private partnership to increase public access to peer-reviewed publications that report on federally funded research.
Conceived by publishers, CHORUS will :provide a full solution for agencies to comply with the OSTP memo on public access topeer-reviewed scientific publications reporting on federally-funded research
Build on publishers’ existing infrastructure to enhance public access to research literature, avoiding duplication of effort, minimizing cost to the government and ensuring the continued availability of the research literature
ChemSpider is a free chemical structure database providing fast text and structure search access to over 29 million structures from hundreds of data sources. properties and associated information.
By integrating and linking compounds from more than 400 data sources, ChemSpider enables researchers to discover the most comprehensive view of freely available chemical data from a single online search.
The National Chemical Database Service offers access to a suite of commercial databases and resources, with additional development to create a chemistry data repository to take place.
All UK academic institutions are eligible for access to the service,
A unique partnership between the European Community and the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries
To reduce the barriers to drug discovery in industry, academia and for small businesses,
the Open PHACTS consortium is building the Open PHACTS Discovery Platform.
This will be freely available, integrating pharmacological data from a variety of information resources and providing tools and services to question this integrated data to support pharmacological research.
