ACS now deposits AuthorChoice papers in PMC

Robert Kiley, ACS Open Choice articles - now in PMC and UKPMC, UK PubMed Central Blog, March 24, 2009.

Papers published by the American Chemical Society (ACS) under their [AuthorChoice] option are now available in [PubMedCentral] and UKPMC. ...

All future papers published under this model will be made available through these repositories at the time of publication.

ACS [AuthorChoice] articles are fully open access in the sense that the licence allows users - for non-commercial research and education purposes - to "access, download, copy, display and redistribute articles as well as adapt, translate text and data mine the content...."

This model meets the requirements of the Wellcome Trust - and the other funders in the UKPMC Funders Group.
