Clays and Clay Minerals OPEN-ACCESS and SELF-ARCHIVING
For CMS, the term `open-access’ means the full text of an article in the journal is made available free of charge to anyone from the moment it is published. CMS will provide open-access to any article posted on the CMS website, on its Ingenta-hosted site, or on GeoScience World for which an author pays the $250 per page creation cost. The author can link to this free-access article from any other site.
The term `Self-archiving’ means the article is posted and made available on another institution's website, free of charge. CMS will provide a pdf file for self-archiving of any article for which an author pays the $250 per page creation cost. The organization is encouraged to link to the article on the CMS site, rather than hosting the file themselves.
