Researchers from Japan

IOP Publishing (IOP) has a transformative agreement with Toyota Central Research & Development Laboratories to enable a transition to open access publishing.

Who can benefit?
All corresponding authors that are current staff members, researchers (permanent, temporary and visiting), or students at Toyota Central Research & Development Laboratories at the point of submission, can publish open access at no cost to themselves. The corresponding author is the author that submits the manuscript and is responsible for communicating with the journal during the submission, peer review and publication process.

What’s included?

  • Research paper, special issue, letter and review article types
  • Included journals are those in lists A, B, C and D. Click here for a full title list of eligible journals.
  • 6 articles per year, accepted from 1st January, will be eligible for transformative agreement funding to enable authors to publish open access with no cost to themselves.

Please note
Funding is subject to librarian funding approval at acceptance stage. If for any reason funding is declined, the author(s) will have the opportunity to revert to subscription publication type at zero cost to themselves or the member institution.

A very limited number of journals carry additional charges. Please access the journal home pages here and check the publication charges tab for further information.
