New Open Access Journal by the American Chemical Society

The American Chemical Society (ACS), “the world’s largest scientific society” (ACS, 2014) is launching an open access journal, ACS Central Science

According to ACS this journal will be the society’s “first completely open access journal and the first highly selective, society-published, pure open access journal to cover the breadth of chemistry and its interfaces with research in the natural and physical sciences” (ACS, 2104). ACS Central Science will have no author fees and all articles will be openly available to the public.
