IEEE and CERN are pleased to announce that they’ve entered into an open access read and publish agreement.

The transformative read and publish agreement enables CERN-corresponding authors to publish open access articles in all IEEE journals and 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 CERN’s centrally funded IEEE open access APC account. CERN’s authors are now able to publish open access articles in 160 leading hybrid journals and all fully open journals published by IEEE, making articles instantly available and free to read by the general public.
