IEEE and the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission (JRC) have entered into an agreement to enable JRC researchers to comply with the European Commission’s reuse policy when publishing in all IEEE Full Gold Open Access journals and Open Access in hybrid journals. To fully comply with the Reuse policy, JRC requires that authors select a Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) license.
To benefit from this agreement, the corresponding author must be affiliated with JRC. Under the agreement, the article processing charges (APCs) required to publish open access will be covered by JRC (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.
For more information on Open Access at JRC, please consult the Open Access section of the JRC intranet, or contact the JRC at this email address.
