AIP Publishing, a leading not-for-profit scholarly publisher in the physical sciences, is delighted to announce a three-year Read and Publish agreement with the Consortium of Swiss Academic Libraries (CSAL).
Commencing in January 2022, the agreement runs until the end of 2024 and includes access to all of AIP Publishing’s peer-reviewed hybrid journals. Over half of the consortiums’ members are participating in the agreement, representing a major opportunity for researchers in Switzerland to publish open access without incurring article processing charges (APCs) in AIP Publishing’s prestigious journals.
Participating institutions include CERN, EPF Lausanne, ETH Zürich, Lib4RI – Library of Eawag, Empa, PSI, WSL, and the Universities of Basel, Bern, Zürich, Fribourg, and Geneva.
“AIP Publishing welcomes this new partnership with CSAL,” said Penelope Lewis, AIP Publishing’s Chief Publishing Officer. “It offers a major opportunity to help facilitate the dissemination of research from nine of Switzerland’s most eminent institutions and world leaders in the physical sciences.”
