Effective January 1, 2013, the UC Libraries no longer have a systemwide agreement for online journals with the publisher Taylor & Francis. The cancellation of the Taylor & Francis contract was a UC-wide decision after an agreement could not be reached regarding the value of the UC subscription package. The decision followed a rigorous value assessment of Taylor & Francis journals based on three principles: achieving sustainable pricing, better aligning cost to value, and maintaining the highest quality journal content possible across a broad range of disciplines.
UCSF scholars can publish open access articles at no cost in Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) journals during RSC’s 2013 Gold for Gold program.

The Gold for Gold initiative provides all RSC Gold subscribers with voucher codes to make papers available via OA, free of charge.
