ACS Publishing has announced an expansion of its open access publishing program, including the planned launch of a new open access journal in 2014. "These bold, new and expanded open access programs from ACS reinforce our drive for sustainable universal access to the results of scientific research," said Susan King, Senior Vice President, Journals Publishing Group, ACS Publications.

The new journal will be called ACS Central Science and will publish multidisciplinary papers across the broad spectrum of the chemical sciences. There will be an international editorial board and all papers will be peer reviewed, with no article publishing charges on the authors.

Under the new initiative ACS Editors' Choice, ACS publishing will provide open access to one new article a day, recommended by the editors of the society's journals and chosen to "feature highly innovative research of broad public interest."

The ACS Author Rewards will provide author credit for each article accepted for publication by the ACS up to a total value of $1,500 per publication. The credits can be used to offset article publishing charges and any ACS open access publishing services over 2015-2017.

The ACS AuthorChoice initiative, which enables authors to license immediate open availability of their published articles, has also been expanded.
