The University of Iowa Libraries is pleased to announce a new transformative read and publish agreement with the Institute of Physics (IOP). The agreement, negotiated through the Big Ten Academic Alliance (BTAA), ensures continued access to IOPscience and supports unlimited Open Access publishing in eligible IOP journals for University of Iowa authors without paying article processing charges (APCs).
The agreement takes effect on Jan. 1, 2023, and runs through Dec. 31, 2025. To qualify for the agreement, the article must be accepted in an eligible IOP journal within that timeframe and have a corresponding author from the University of Iowa or another participating institution.
Corresponding authors must identify themselves as affiliated with the University of Iowa and use their institutional email address as part of the IOP publishing workflow. They will automatically be identified as eligible to publish open access without paying APCs. Authors will retain copyright and the article will be published under a CC-BY Creative Commons license.
The IOP agreement is one of a growing number of transformative agreements the UI Libraries participates in as part of its commitment to support Open Access. If you have any questions, please contact the Sciences Library or the Scholarly Impact Department.
