AIP Publishing, a not-for-profit scholarly publisher in the physical sciences, has signed a multi-year ‘Read and Publish’ agreement with King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
KAUST is the first university from the Middle East region to sign a multi-year transformative agreement with AIP Publishing. As a result of the agreement, university-affiliated corresponding authors whose articles are accepted for publication in any of AIP Publishing’s hybrid journals (subscription-based titles that offer an open-access option) will be made open access without any article processing charge (APC). Members of the KAUST community will continue to have access to all AIP journals content for which they hold subscriptions, as well as the new journals scheduled to launch during the agreement’s term.
The KAUST University Library, with the support of University’s Office of Sponsored Research (OSR), has taken a proactive role of negotiating with publishers on innovative ways to support the KAUST open access policy (http://libguides.kaust.edu.sa/OpenAccessPolicy), supplement the KAUST research repository, and increase the impact of KAUST research publications with widespread availability throughout the world.
