The Royal Society of Chemistry has agreed a new deal with SURFmarket, a Dutch consortium representing research universities across the Netherlands. The fresh, two-year agreement grants access to the full range of Royal Society of Chemistry content and services, in 2019 and 2020, while supporting the transition to open access; a shared goal between RSC and the scientific community in the Netherlands.
Eight of the 13 institutions have signed up to the Read & Publish model, which allows articles published in Royal Society of Chemistry journals by corresponding authors to be made publicly available at the time of publication, at no further direct cost to the author.
Royal Society of Chemistry director of sales and marketing, Stephen Rumbelow, said: “Our relationship with the chemistry community across the Netherlands is a long-standing one, so we are hugely enthusiastic about the opportunity to rekindle our support.
“We are uniquely placed as a not-for-profit publisher of high-quality chemical science content, so this deal reaffirms our commitment to support a global community through chemistry research and knowledge sharing.
“It’s also excellent news that we are now able to increase the number of institutions who are using the Read & Publish model, in light of commitments to Open Access and developments on Plan S across Europe.”
