IEEE and University of Illinois, are pleased to announce that they’ve entered into an open access read and publish agreement.

With this new agreement, researchers will have access to IEEE’s premier collection of journals, conferences, and standards via the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. The university’s authors are also able to publish articles via open access in over 160 leading journals and magazines published by IEEE, making them instantly available and free to read by the general public. In today’s environment, it is important for researchers to continue to innovate, and that they are provided with the resources and publishing options they need to do so. Both the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) and Chicago campuses are part of this content agreement.
