OA Read and Publish Agreement

IEEE and FinELib, a consortium of Finnish universities, universities of applied sciences, research institutes, and public libraries, are pleased to announce that they’ve entered into an open access read and publish agreement.

With this new agreement, researchers and other users at the participating institutions will be able to access IEEE journals, conferences, and standards via the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. The agreement also grants affiliated corresponding authors the opportunity to publish their work open access. Under the terms of the three-year agreement, the costs of accessing subscription content and the article processing charges (APCs) required to publish open access are covered by the license fees paid by consortium members, making the process easier and more convenient for authors.
