AIP Publishing, a leading not-for-profit scholarly publisher in the physical sciences, has announced that they have signed a multi-year ‘Read and Publish’ agreement with the Tokyo University of Science (TUS) in Japan.
The agreement reflects the publisher’s commitment to developing a transformative publishing model that adds value to existing journals subscriptions by offering open access publishing options for university-affiliated researchers. Since 2019, AIP Publishing has partnered with academic institutions around the world to test and gather critical feedback in a Read and Publish pilot program. Tokyo University of Science is the first university in Asia to sign a multi-year transformative agreement with AIP Publishing.
As a result of the agreement, members of the TUS community will have access to even more AIP Publishing content than they do today. In addition, articles by corresponding authors affiliated with Tokyo University of Science that are accepted for publication in any of AIP Publishing’s hybrid journals will be made open access without an article processing charge (APC). The three-year agreement runs from 2020 through 2022 and allows TUS to publish more than three times as many articles in AIP Publishing titles as they historically have at no additional cost.
