Research papers, special issue papers, and letters accepted in the listed IOP journals where a KAUST affiliated author is the corresponding author can be published Open Access at no additional charge (free APC).
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 email@example.com

Important note: If a publisher is not listed here, you can still make your research article open access without paying an article processing charge to a publisher. You are required, as per KAUST’s open access policy, to submit the "author accepted manuscript" version of your article to KAUST’s research repository and University Library will make it available to the world according to the publisher's policies with a link to the original article and DOI. You can also deposit associated datasets to the research repository with a DOI registration. The Library has improved the Repository services with integrations to several systems, tools, search engines and now this has the highest download rate with a global user base.

IOP Environmental Research series - 3 new OA journals with waived APCs
IOP Publishing (IOPP) is launching three new, fully open access (OA) journals, extending the publisher’s Environmental Research series.
Environmental Research: Health (ERH) and Environmental Research: Climate (ERCL) will both open submissions from today. The third new journal, Environmental Research: Ecology (ERE) will open for submissions later in 2021. IOPP will waive all OA article publication charges for articles that are submitted to the three new launches before 2024. After the initial waiver period for all, authors from low- and middle-income countries who publish in IOPP’s new journals don’t have to pay any article processing costs.
