Open Access Agreements and Funding

CWRU authors are able to publish open access at no cost in select journals through agreements with several publishers. This guide provides details on each agreement for CWRU authors.

Agreement Details (2023-25)

Starting January 1, 2023, students, faculty, and staff at most OhioLINK member institutions will have access to current articles published in all 70+ journals published by IOP. In addition, corresponding authors at OhioLINK member institutions may publish open access (OA) journal articles at no additional charge to either the author or the institution.

Access to the publishing benefits begins on January 1, 2022, and continues through December 31, 2025. This means that to publish an article as open access without paying any Article Publication Charge (APC), the article to be published must be accepted for publication after January 1, 2023, and on or before December 31, 2025. OhioLINK's agreement with IOP allows for original research and review articles to be published as open-access in all journals that participate in IOP's transformative agreements(link sends e-mail), including most of its fully open-access and hybrid open-access journals

See the OhioLINK information page for authors for more details.
