Wiley-VCH, part of the scientific and technical publishing business of John Wiley & Sons, Inc. and ChemPubSoc Europe, an association of 16 chemical societies, have announced the launch of ChemistryOpen, the first open access chemical society journal. The societies join the Wiley Open Access publishing program.
ChemistryOpen will publish peer-reviewed primary research in all areas of chemistry, and will thus satisfy funding organisations and institutes which require that the research funded by them should be accessible to all. As an additional feature, the new journal will publish short summaries of PhD theses with a link to the full version. This Thesis Treasury will make PhD theses in chemistry readily accessible while linking them through CrossRef to all cited journal articles in the program.
The first open access articles will be posted online later this year, with the first full issue following in early 2012.
The editors, Dr Karen Hindson and Dr Haymo Ross situated in Weinheim, Germany, recently spoke with Dr. Vera Köster, editor of the ChemViews magazine about ChemistryOpen. Read the interview here.
