Clays and Clay Minerals: Open Access and Open Archives

Open Access articles, i.e. articles for which an Author Publication Charge (APC) has been paid, may be shared and posted to websites or servers without permission. However, if you reuse figures or other parts of the article you must acknowledge the source of the material and you must comply with normal publishing ethics.

At CMS, open access (often called ‘Gold Open Access’) means the full text of an article in the journal posted on SpringerLink site is made available to anyone from the moment it is published by the authors paying the article processing fee. APC costs are listed here.
