AIP Publishing, a leading not-for-profit scholarly publisher in the physical sciences, has reached a three-year Read & Publish agreement with MALMAD, the Israeli Inter-University Center for Digital Information Services.
This is AIP Publishing’s second Read & Publish agreement in the Middle East. Eight leading academic members of the MALMAD consortium are participating in the agreement.
The agreement starts January 2022 and runs to the end of 2024. Researchers at MALMAD member institutions are now able to publish open access and gain full access to read all of AIP Publishing’s peer-reviewed, journals.
“With this new transformative agreement, MALMAD is delighted to be expanding opportunities for researchers across Israel’s universities,” said Dr. Sigal Lahav Scher, MALMAD’s Director. “This agreement enhances our support of the physical sciences community by enabling our researchers to publish open access in some of the most renowned journals in the field.”
“AIP Publishing is proud to partner with MALMAD,” said Penelope Lewis, AIP Publishing’s Chief Publishing Officer. “The agreement creates new possibilities for researchers across Israel’s prestigious scientific community to increase the accessibility of their work through open access publishing in AIP Publishing’s journals.”
MALMAD, the Israeli Inter-University center for Digital Information Services, serves as a consortium for the acquisition, licensing and operation of information services to universities and colleges in Israel. It is a sub-unit of the Israeli Inter-University Computation Center (IUCC). This inter-university cooperation and pooling of resources ensures that digital information services are provided more efficiently and at a lower cost-per-user.
