I am affiliated to a university/institution, how do I check whether my institution or university has an open access policy?

Some universities and institutions have open access policies, but faculty are not always aware of their existence.  Therefore, if you are not sure, we suggest you search for ‘open access policy’ on your institution’s/university’s website, or in a search engine including the name of your institution/university.  Or you could check with your university librarian.

This website contains a list of a number of institutions and universities which have an open access policy, but it should not be treated as a comprehensive list.  Each Named Author who is affiliated to a university/institution is responsible for checking whether their institution or university has an open access policy and, if so,  whether it is incompatible with IOP Publishing’s green open access policy.

Institutions with such policies are predominantly in the USA.
