Library enters agreements with Open Access publishers.
The University Library has established agreements with several Open Access (OA) publishers that will allow for coverage of Article Processing Charges (APCs) for Iowa State corresponding authors. Agreements have been reached with the publishers Hindawi, Public Library of Science (PLoS), and Copernicus. Negotiations are underway with several other pure OA publishers, including eLife, PeerJ, and MDPI.
The Library is committed to advancing the sharing of knowledge created at Iowa State. Support for OA publishing sits alongside other scholarly communication initiatives in the library, such as the Digital Repository, Digital Press, and newly launched data repository, DataShare.
Find more information about current OA agreements on the Open Access Publishing webpage.
