RSC Publishing platform
The RSC Publishing Platform allows you to search across all our journal, book and database products from one simple interface. There is a wealth of free content on the platform - to access it, all you need to do is register for an RSC Publishing personal account.
Setting up your account is simple - all we ask is that you provide some very basic information, including a valid email address for authentication. Then, when you are logged in, you will be able to access all our free content. This includes:
- All content of our newest journals, including Chemical Science, for the first 2 volumes
- Any articles that are part of a special free access promotion (eg 'hot' papers, web theme issues, etc)
- A sample chapter from each book in the RSC eBook Collection
With your username and password you can access the free content any time, any place.
A succinct summary of the very best research published in RSC Journals is selected and written by scientists. Any RSC journal articles covered have free online access for a limited number of weeks (so you can link directly from the news article to read and download the source research paper).
Selected content from the rest of the magazine is also freely available.
