Transformative and Institutional Open Access Agreements

IOP has reached agreements, sometimes known as transformative agreements, with a number of institutions, funders and consortia to manage the cost of article publication charges (APCs) for open access publishing. These typically enable authors to publish on an open access basis at no cost to themselves.

For more information and to see how to take advantage of these agreements, please see the individual web pages below. You may also find our author guide for submitting under a transformative agreement helpful.

The Electrochemical Society (ECS) Journals

If you are submitting an article to a journal from The Electrochemical Society, you may be entitled to free open access under an institutional ECS Plus agreement.
