Big Ten Academic Alliance announces unlimited publishing deal with Institute of Physics Publishing
Dec 15, 2022, 12:17 PM
Participating Big Ten Academic Alliance libraries have reached a transformative, three-year Read and Publish Agreement with the Institute of Physics (IOP), a further step in collective action toward the Big Collection. This agreement begins on January 1, 2023, and runs through December 31, 2025.
This agreement extends BTAA’s access to the IOPscience extra journal collection for three years. Participating libraries’ access to IOP journals will not change.
Open Access Publishing Opportunities
This agreement supports unlimited Open Access publishing in eligible IOP journals, including 58 hybrid journals representing almost all of IOP and society partners’ hybrid titles and 18 fully open access journals. Eligible corresponding authors from participating institutions* may publish OA in these journals at no cost to themselves. There is no limit to the number of articles that can be published OA under this agreement. To qualify for no-cost OA publication, the article must be accepted in an eligible IOP journal between January 1, 2023, and December 31, 2025, and have a corresponding author from one of the participating institutions.
To have their articles published at no cost to themselves under the terms of this agreement, responsible corresponding authors must identify themselves as BTAA institutional affiliates and use their institutional email addresses as part of the IOP publishing workflow.
