Institutional Open Access Options

Open Access Solutions for Institutions and Funders

IEEE offers open access programs designed to make it convenient for institutions and funders to support and manage costs for authors and simplify the publishing process by paying for article processing charges (APCs) in advance.

In addition, IEEE offers a helpful open access administration system for institutional customers: RightsLink for Scientific Communications (RLSC). Administrators can easily track, manage, and report on funding requests.

IEEE has flexible options for any size organization designed to make it easy for institutions to assist their authors and demonstrate their support for open access.
