Open access and the American Chemical Society
From Chemical and Engineering News: open access gaining more ground as the ACS launches a new AuthorChoice feature for authors publishing in their journals:
"In October, American Chemical Society journal authors will have the option of paying to immediately provide free online access to their articles on the society's website. Authors will also be able to post electronic copies of their sponsored articles on personal websites and institutional repositories. Fees for the program will range from $1,000 to $3,000 per paper, depending on whether the author is an ACS member or is affiliated with an institution that subscribes to ACS journals."
