"IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for humanity, announced today that it has reached a three-year open access agreement with Hellenic Academic Libraries Link (HEAL-Link), a consortium of Greek universities that includes 43 institutions.
With this new agreement, all researchers belonging to participating Greek institutions are now able to publish open access articles in approximately 200 leading journals and magazines published by IEEE, making them instantly available and free to read by the public, supporting HEAL-Link’s mission to help make their authors’ publications open to the world. Under the terms of the agreement, the costs of accessing subscription content and the article processing charges (APCs) required to publish open access are covered by the license fees paid by consortium members, making the process easier and more convenient for authors.
Participating members of the HEAL-Link consortium will have:
Open access publishing rights in over 160 hybrid IEEE journals and all IEEE fully open access journals, making articles instantly available and free to read by the general public
Publication of all open access IEEE journal articles with a Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) license unless otherwise requested by the author
Read access rights to peer-reviewed journals, access to approximately 200,000 new conference papers added each year from approximately 2,000 expert conferences, as well as IEEE standards (totaling more than 4.8 million articles overall)..."
