AIP Publishing, a leading not-for-profit scholarly publisher in the physical sciences, has reached a three-year Read & Publish agreement with Universiteitsbibliotheken & Koninklijke Bibliotheek (UKB), the Dutch association of university libraries and the National Library of the Netherlands.
The agreement, which runs until the end of 2024, includes eight UKB member institutions: Eindhoven University of Technology, Maastricht University, Radboud University, TU Delft, University of Amsterdam, University of Twente, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, and the University of Groningen.
Researchers at these institutions are now able to publish Open Access with AIP Publishing without directly incurring article processing charges (APCs) in 26 journals and gain unlimited reading access to 28 journals.
“We are excited to collaborate with UKB in this agreement,” said Penelope Lewis, AIP Publishing’s Chief Publishing Officer. “UKB are key partners in supporting the transition to Open Access in the physical sciences and across the research community as a whole.”
UKB is a partnership of Dutch University Libraries and The National Library of the Netherlands (Koninklijke Bibliotheek). UKB is committed to supporting and accelerating scientific progress, by developing and managing universal and sustainable access to knowledge for everyone. UKB is working towards open knowledge, anytime, anyplace, whilst retaining scope for local colour.
