Workflow for authors

A workflow process adapted to the agreement will not be in place at the publisher by January 1st, 2020. ACS will therefore make articles that have been accepted before the workflow is in place open access in retrospect. Before the manuscript management system is in place, information about articles will be sent from the publisher to the national consortium and from there to each university's office for verification. Articles with LU affiliation are verified by the University Library.

State your affiliation to Lund University and always use the LU / LTH e-mail in contact with the publisher.
