AIP Publishing, a leading not-for-profit scholarly publisher in the physical sciences, has signed a three-year Read & Publish agreement with the Institute of Science and Technology Austria (ISTA). The agreement covers the period January 2022 – December 2024.
Under the agreement, researchers affiliated with ISTA will be able to publish open access in all of AIP Publishing’s hybrid journals, with no author-incurred article processing charges (APCs). In addition, they gain unlimited reading access to the journals.
“This agreement underpins our commitment as an institution to open access,” said Patrick Danowski, Manager of the ISTA library. “We are delighted to be partnering with ISTA in this Read & Publish agreement,” said Penelope Lewis, AIP Publishing’s Chief Publishing Officer. “Publishing open access expands the global reach and impact of published research and is core to our mission.”
ISTA is a PhD-granting research institution dedicated to cutting-edge research in the physical, mathematical, computer, and life sciences. Established in 2006 on the outskirts of Vienna, ISTA brings together scientists from all over the world, and encourages collaboration across scientific fields as well as curiosity-driven research.
