Molecular Systems Design & Engineering (MSDE) is now approved as a “Transformative Journal” with cOAlition S, an international consortium of research funding and performing organisations.
Jointly owned by the Institution of Chemical Engineers and the Royal Society of Chemistry, MSDE joins the ranks of our wholly owned titles that achieved Transformative Journals status last year. This is the first step we are taking to realise our ambition of converting our entire hybrid portfolio to 100% Open Access within five years, as was announced in our recent commitment.
Dr Sam Keltie, Royal Society of Chemistry Publisher, said: “For MSDE to have Transformative Journals status is good news for the researchers this journal serves, working at the interface of chemistry and chemical engineering.
"I’m proud to say this makes the journal an even more inclusive venue, as it now provides a compliant route to publishing OA for authors whose institutions are cOAlition S signatories, whether or not they have a transformative deal with the RSC.”
