Researchers from University of Ljubljana

IOP Publishing (IOP) has a transformative agreement with University of Ljubljana to enable a transition towards open access publishing.

All current staff members, researchers and students can take advantage of this agreement, where all eligible research articles will be published on an open access basis at no cost to authors. For articles accepted from 1 Jan 2022 onwards, all IOP and the majority of our partner journals that offer hybrid open access options are included in the agreement.

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 a current staff member, researcher or student of University of Ljubljana. When you submit your article, please supply your affiliation clearly in the article submission form and in the article itself for identification. Please also acknowledge any research funding if asked during submission as well as in the manuscript itself.
  2. At first decision
    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 licence.
  3. 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.
