Australia’s national science agency, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) has an agreement with IEEE that enables CSIRO authors to publish articles without open access fees (APCs) in all IEEE Full Gold Open Access journals and Open Access in hybrid journals.
The agreement applies to the first 13 articles accepted for publication in 2023. To benefit from this agreement, the corresponding author must be affiliated with CSIRO. Under the agreement, the article processing charges (APCs) required to publish open access will be covered by CSIRO (subject to funding request approval), making the publishing process easier and more convenient for authors.
Note: overlength page charges or colour fees are not covered by the agreement and will be charged to authors.
