The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) has entered into a transformative open access agreement with IReL, the Irish e-resource licensing consortium. The agreement covers both access to and open access publication in ACM’s journals, proceedings and magazines for eight Irish universities, including Dublin City University, Maynooth University, National University Ireland Galway, Technological University Dublin, Trinity College Dublin, University College Cork, University College Dublin, and University of Limerick. This agreement represents the first transformative open access agreements for ACM with institutions outside the United States.
Under the new agreement, which runs for a three-year term beginning January 1, 2020, faculty and students of these eight participating universities will receive unlimited and unrestricted access to all articles in the ACM Digital Library during the term. All publications from corresponding authors from these institutions published during the term in ACM journals, conference proceedings and magazines will be made open access at the time of publication at no cost to the authors.
ACM will make deposits into institutional repositories for all co-authors from these universities. The new agreement also expands the range of rights authors retain when publishing with ACM. This new agreement expresses ACM’s commitment to open access publication and its transition to full open access within the next several years. ACM is extending the principles of the new ACM OPEN access model to universities throughout the world.
