The theme of Open Access Week this year centers around the importance of community. In keeping with this theme, IEEE now has many open access opportunities now available to authors, institutions, and the global technical and academic community, with more options added each year.
IEEE continually strives to support the community of authors and readers globally and works to provide authors with a wide range of options and choices to publish in whether it be a traditional journal or in a fully open access journal. With an expanding portfolio of options, IEEE continues to support open science and provide more options and choices to support the work and needs of all authors and researchers. IEEE is also committed to working with institutions and funders to provide sustainable open access publishing opportunities to authors that allow for a wider dissemination of knowledge and enable authors to maximize exposure of their research. With these programs in place, IEEE has reached a major milestone this year of over 100,000 open access articles published in IEEE Xplore.
As a supporter of open science, IEEE joins in the celebration of International Open Access Week from Monday, October 23rd through Sunday, October 29th.
