Open access, archiving, and copyright permissions
CORROSION is a hybrid open access journal, which means that while it is subscription-based, authors have the choice to publish their articles open access, making them freely available to the public.
Gold open access
Authors can choose to have their article published freely and permanently available to the public via gold open access. The article processing fee for gold open access publication is $1,800. Authors need to submit a license agreement instead of a copyright agreement during article submission and choose from the following types of creative commons licenses:

This license allows for commercial and noncommercial redistribution of the OA article, provided that it is redistributed as-is and in whole, with credit given to the original article.

This license allows others to download the OA article and share it with others for noncommercial purposes, provided that it is redistributed as-is and in whole, with credit given to the original article.
Green open access (self-archiving & repositories)
CORROSION authors may self-archive their final submitted draft in their institution’s repository after an embargo period of 90 days from first publication. This version includes revisions made during peer review, prior to article acceptance. Articles posted in repositories must include a link to the article’s digital object identifier (DOI) or a link to the article’s abstract on CORROSION’s website.
Under green open access, articles may not be shared on any commercial websites, including ResearchGate, Scribd, or Academia.edu. The version of record (fully formatted version) of articles may not be posted in repositories or on other websites unless the appropriate creative commons license (CC BY, CC BY-ND, or CC BY-NC-ND) has been acquired.
