IOP Open Access Agreement 2018-2021
Information for Max Planck Authors
MPDL established an agreement with Institute of Physics Publishing (IOP) which allows authors to publish open access in selected Gold Open Access and subscription journals under a free Creative Commons Attribution license (CC-BY). The agreement also includes access to IOP's premium journal collection IOPScience extra. The open access agreement with Max Planck Society centrally covers the open access publication charge for Max Planck affiliated corresponding authors meaning that authors or institutions will not be invoiced.
In order to make use of the agreement, please make sure to meet the following general conditions when publishing with IOP:
- A Max Planck author must be the corresponding author of the article.
- The author is affiliated with a Max Planck Institute and publishes under this affiliation - the Max Planck Institute must be stated in the article.
- The acceptance date of the article is between Jan 1, 2018 and Dec 31, 2021 (for the newly included Gold Open Access journals indicated with *, the acceptance date must be between Jan 1, 2020 and Dec 31, 2021).
- The article matches one of these types: article, special issue article, letter.
