IEEE and Missouri State University (MSU) are pleased to announce that they’ve entered into an open access read and publish agreement. This marks the first read and publish agreement for MSU with a major publisher.

With this new agreement, MSU-corresponding authors will be able to publish open access articles in all IEEE journals and the agreement combines reading access to over five million documents from the IEEE Xplore Digital Library, including scientific journals, conference proceedings, and IEEE standards. The agreement also makes it more convenient for authors to publish open access articles with IEEE as article processing charges (APCs) are prepaid by MSU’s centrally funded IEEE open access APC account.  MSU’s authors are now able to publish open access articles in 100+ leading hybrid journals and all fully open journals published by IEEE, making articles instantly available and free to read by the general public.
