The Swiss Chemical Society (SCS) is part and co-owner of Chemistry Europe (CE), a consortium of 16 European scientific societies and the Wiley publishing house that publishes a family of high-quality scholarly chemistry journals, covering a very broad range of disciplines. The SCS is strongly committed to motivate Swiss based researchers to publish their results in the CE journals. As in many other European countries, Wiley has also reached an agreement in Switzerland that authors affiliated with Consortium of Swiss Academic Libraries (CSAL) may publish primary research and review articles as open access in any of Wiley's hybrid journals at no charge to the author.

To publish without having to pay additional Article Publication Charges (APCs), the article's responsible corresponding author must be from an eligible institution and the article must have been accepted on or after 1 May 2021.

You can be confident that by choosing open access your work has the best chance to be read, cited and shared. Read more about the advantages of publishing open access here. Publishing open access:

  • Complies with funder or institution mandates
  • Allows you to retain copyright through a CC BY license
  • Enables automatic deposit in PMC (when appropriate)

To be eligible:

  • Your manuscript must have been accepted on or after 1 May 2021.
  • You must be the responsible corresponding author who is affiliated with an eligible Swiss institution at the point of acceptance.
  • All primary research and review articles qualify.
  • You must order hybrid open access by using our order workflow as described on the website.
