Open Access For ACS Articles?
Rich Apodaca investigates something that I didn't know, either: that the ACS provides the corresponding authors of papers with links to their articles, which (1) allow for fifty free downloads during the first year after publication, and (2) allow for unlimited free downloads after that. I thought about that for a while, and couldn't remember any examples of such a link, not that I'd noticed, at any rate.
Apodaca's having trouble reducing it to practice, too. He has been trying to get such a link for one of his own papers in J. Med. Chem., and . . .well, his post will tell you about all the places he's looked so far. Let's just say that the ACS does not make it obvious where a corresponding author is supposed to obtain such a URL. Has anyone out there tried this, and has anyone had any success?
