In 2021, research and review articles accepted in the listed IOP journals where a KAUST affiliated author is the corresponding author, the article can be published Open Access at no additional charge (free APCs are for research papers, special issue papers and letters). Please follow these steps.
This agreement will only support KAUST authors to make their article Open Access, without any extra payment of APCs or administrative process. Author(s) are still responsible for all publishing-related activities, including preparing the manuscript and correspondence during the publication process with the publisher, reviewers or co-authors, as usual.
NOTE: The number of free APCs for 2021 is limited.
If you need further details, or a meeting, or presentation to your team - please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

also called “Green” Open Access
means that the published article or the final peer-reviewed manuscript (accepted version) is archived (deposited) by the author or a representative in an online repository before, alongside or after its publication. Self-archiving regulations differ between publisher’s. Normally authors have to check their publishing agreement to find out whether self-archiving is allowed. You can use KAUST Repository for that.
