IEEE offers two approaches to open access to fit your needs.
IEEE Open Access Publishing AgreementThe Open Access Publishing Agreement (OAPA) offers the following benefits:
- IEEE makes an explicit promise to authors that their published article will be freely available to all users online
- Authors are free to post the final, published version of their article on their personal websites, their employers’ sites, and their funding agencies’ sites
- The OAPA grants IEEE sufficient legal rights to resolve any complaints of abuse (such as plagiarism) of the authors’ content
- Readers are allowed to copy the work, translate it, or reuse it for text or data mining provided that the usage is for non-commercial purposes
Signing the OAPA transfers the author’s copyright to IEEE but allows for universal free online access and protection from commercial use.
