Transforming scholarly communication and research publishing landscape.

Read and Publish agreement with AIP Publishing

KAUST signed a Read and Publish agreement with AIP Publishing (AIPP) from 2020 to 2022 for AIPP hybrid journals.

Research and review articles that identify the corresponding author as a KAUST student, researcher or faculty member during the submission process have the opportunity to be published as Open Access. 

Submitting an article Open Access through the Read & Publish agreement with AIP Publishing

1. At the point of submission, authors will be informed about the agreement and asked if they want to publish Open Access.

2. If they choose this option, their article will be published OA in the selected AIPP hybrid journal.

3. The author will need to agree to the CC-BY open access license.

NOTE: the number of OA articles that can be published under this agreement is limited per year.
