Open Access in Croatia

IOP Publishing (IOP) has a transformative agreement with a number of Croatian institutions to enable a transition towards open access publishing.

Eligible articles accepted for publication during 2021 will be published on an open access basis at no cost to authors.

Click here for a list of eligible journals. This agreement includes journals in List A, B and C.  Gold open access journals are not currently included, and please note that while the Article Publication Charge (APC) is covered, page charges or publication fees unrelated to open access are not included in our open access agreements.

How to take advantage of the agreement

This process applies to all primary research article types, including  Letters, Papers, Reviews and Special Issue articles.

1. Submission
The corresponding (submitting) author must be affiliated with a subscribing institution (listed below). When you submit your article please supply your affiliation clearly in the article submission form and in the article itself. Please also acknowledge any research funding if asked during submission as well as in the manuscript itself.

2. Identification
If your article is identified you will be notified during the peer-review process or shortly after acceptance, and your paper will automatically be opted in to open access. You’ll be asked to agree to the CC-BY open access license. If you wish to opt out please do so within five days of identification.

3. Acceptance and Publication
Your paper will be published open access under a CC-BY license at no cost to you. You can share it as you wish and the article will comply with funder mandates.

If you have not been alerted before your article is accepted, please contact the journal to ensure that your work is included in the arrangement.
