American Chemical Society (ACS) Read and Publish

23 Feb 2022


Dear Members of Istanbul Technical University,

A "Read and Publish" agreement for 2022 has been signed with the American Chemical Society (ACS), to which we have been a subscriber for many years.

Due to our ACS subscription, the publications you will make as a co-author in ACS journals will be published as open access without paying the article processing fee (APC). The agreement covers publications (excluding additions, corrections, editorials, and book chapters) in all ACS journals, including  ACS OmegaJACS AuACS Au collection and all  ACS hibrit journals   .

We recommend that you pay attention to the following points.

1) The sending co-author must specify his affiliation with our institution by selecting our university via a drop-down menu in his Paragon Plus profile. The submitting co-author should be identified as the person who will communicate with ACS throughout the peer-review process.

2) The sending corresponding author must use the university e-mail address in the Paragon Plus profile.

Authors who meet the above criteria will be considered as Qualifying Authors. As a qualified author, an open access fund request will automatically be made upon acceptance of your article and you will receive a notification from the Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) when your fund request is processed.

While completing the Journal Publishing Agreement, information that your article is covered by an open access agreement should be included. If this information is not included in the contract or if you have any problems with the open access publication of your article, you can contact us at the address of

You can find the brochures about the ACS Read-Publish agreement attached.
