AIP Publishing, a leading not-for-profit scholarly publisher in the physical sciences, has announced a Read and Publish agreement with the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR) [National Research Council], Italy’s largest public research institution. All researchers at CNR-affiliated institutes throughout Italy will have access to the content in journals published by AIP Publishing (including those published on behalf of partners) from their first issues through the end of 2020. As a result of the agreement, articles by CNR-affiliated corresponding authors accepted for publication in any AIP Publishing-owned journal may be distributed Open Access without the payment of an article-processing charge (APC).
CNR is committed to advancing science and the wide dissemination of knowledge to the benefit of society by adopting practices on open, reproducible and responsible research. CNR is interested in moving, together with the publishing houses, towards complete public access to scientific publications through a fair, transparent and sustainable economic model. It is in line with the Italian and European legislation, which obliges scientific institutions to provide Open Access to publicly funded scientific research results. The signing of a transformative agreement with AIP Publishing will expand the reach of Italian research output while securing access to an essential collection of journals for CNR’s researchers and scholars.
