Provides information to UR-affiliated authors on open access publishing options at the university.

Institute of Physics (IOP) Publishing


  • Publisher website:
  • Journals: Eligible IOPP journals (for UR agreement: Journal Lists A, B, C & D). Or use IOPP Journal Finder for more details.
  • Criteria for participation: UR-affiliated corresponding author.
  • Description: University-wide agreement with unlimited OA articles (CC-BY license) with automatic approval based on corresponding author affiliation. The agreement covers 100% of the OA fee.
  • Guidance for authors: A guide to submitting under a transformative agreement (under Publishing Support - Authors). Additional guidance videos on YouTube: Transformative Agreements
    • Important notice: Authors submitting a manuscript to IOPP are asked if they want an open access option during the submission process. At that point, it does not really matter what option they choose –although authors can always choose “NO” as the more cautious alternative. If/when the article is accepted, independently of their previous choice during the submission process, authors will receive an email from IOPP stating their eligibility for OA under an institutional agreement. At that point, authors can opt-in under the agreement, or they can opt-out, if they really do not want to publish open with a CC-BY license. More information on this link.
