New UC Wide Transformative Publishing Agreements


  • IEEE Transformative Open Access Agreement

    Update as of October 4, 2023: UC will end the open access publishing portion of its agreement with IEEE effective January 1, 2024, due to low author participation. Funding for page charges will also end at that time. Reading access to IEEE publications will continue without interruption; only UC's funding support for publishing with IEEE is ending.

*University of California Guidelines for Evaluating Transformative Open Access Agreements

*There can sometimes be a time lag between the announcement that a UC-side transformative publishing agreement has been reached and the completion of contracts and implementation of technology to make funding available. Authors are encouraged to review the details of these agreements in order to plan appropriately. For questions, please contact Mitchell Brown,, Scholarly Communications Coordinator, or John Renaud,, Associate University Librarian for Research Resources.
