AIP Publishing, a leading not-for-profit scholarly publisher in the physical sciences, has announced a multi-year Read and Publish agreement with the Max Planck Society. The Max Planck Society is Germany’s leading research organisation, with affiliated institutes, centers, and facilities around the world conducting basic research in the natural sciences, life sciences, social sciences, and the humanities.
As a result of this transformative agreement, articles by Max Planck Society-affiliated corresponding authors accepted for publication in any AIP Publishing-owned journal will be made open access immediately upon publication without any APC being charged to the author. The cost for open access publishing services will, instead, be covered by the Max Planck Digital Library, as part of the Society’s strategy to redirect subscription investments to deliver open access publishing opportunities to its scientists in the journals most relevant to them, in line with the objectives of the global Open Access 2020 Initiative.
In addition, researchers at all Max Planck institute will have access to the content in journals published by AIP Publishing (including those published on behalf of partners) from their first publications through 2020.
