Who needs to obtain a waiver?
Each Named Author affiliated to an institution/university, whose article is being published on a subscription basis (i.e. not on a gold open access basis), must obtain a waiver for the article from their institution’s or university’s open access policy, if the policy is incompatible with IOP Publishing’s green open access policy. This must happen before the article is accepted. Without all the relevant waivers being obtained, IOP Publishing may not be able to publish the article.
