Step 1: Select Thomas Jefferson University as your institution at the time of submission
The submitting author MUST select their Jefferson affiliation at the time an article is submitted. This can be done by the submitting author when they edit their author profile in the ACS Paragon Plus Submission System. Note that the name of the institution may appear differently on the manuscript from the naming convention on the submission system drop-down list.
Step 2: Complete the Journal Publishing Agreement (JPA) once your manuscript is accepted
When your manuscript is accepted, you will receive an email with a link to complete the JPA.
Step 3: Choose "yes" to publish open access
Once you click the link in Step 2, choose "yes" to publish open access. Jefferson Libraries will receive a message to approve your request, and once approved, you will be notified via email.
If you have any questions about this process, email Elizabeth Ten Have.
