IOP Publishing Signs Its First Transformative OA Agreements in the U.S.
IOP Publishing announced the following:
IOP Publishing (IOPP) has signed three new Transformative Agreements (TAs) that will accelerate open access (OA) publishing and extend access to high quality research in the United States (US). The three-year read and publish (R&P) agreements with Princeton University, the University of Central Florida and Connecticut College offer unlimited publishing in all IOPP hybrid and gold OA journals.
The agreements, which will commence on 1 January 2023, will see articles published under an open licence (CC-BY), allowing authors to retain copyright. As well as barrier-free publication, researchers and students affiliated with the three institutions will have reading access to all IOPP journals. …
The three new transformative ‘read and publish’ licences are the most recent in a series of TAs that IOPP has reached with research institutions and consortia around the world. IOPP has now TAs with 290 institutions in 15 countries.
