 Open Access Publishing Vouchers Available for RSC Journals
POSTECH scholars can publish open access articles at no cost in Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) journals during RSC’s 2015 Gold for Gold program. RSC launched this program to help researchers who want to publish their articles open access (OA), but lack funds to pay the OA article processing charge (APC). The Gold for Gold initiative provides all RSC Gold subscribers with voucher codes to make papers available via OA, free of charge. The POSTECH Library subscribes to RSC’s Gold package.

The POSTECH Library has a set number of RSC voucher codes and will assign them on a first-come, first-served basis. Voucher codes can be used to publish full paper, review, or technical note in a RSC journal under the publisher’s Gold OA option. Authors provide the code upon acceptance of their article in a RSC journal.

To request a voucher code, send an email to the Library (, including correspondence from RSC documenting acceptance of the article and showing the name of the author(s), journal title, and article title. Please refer to the guide page for detailed information about open access :
