Lancaster University

Lancaster University is an internationally highly-ranked leader in the provision of inspiring teaching and research. The University is committed to ensuring that the outputs of research are made readily available to anyone who would benefit from them. The Library at Lancaster has set up a prepayment account with IEEE so that article processing charges (APCs) can be paid quickly. Please email openaccess@lancaster.ac.uk with any queries.

To make the CC BY license available as quickly as possible under the Route 2 option, IEEE has implemented a manual fulfillment process for researchers with UKRI funding or from funders with similar mandates. To begin the process, authors who need a CC BY license for an accepted manuscript should send a request to IEEE’s Intellectual Property Rights group at copyrights@ieee.org as soon as they submit their article. To further meet the Route 2 requirements and ensure compliance, the submissions should include the following text in the funding acknowledgement section of the manuscript and any cover note accompanying the submission:
For the purpose of open access, the author(s) has applied a Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) license to any Accepted Manuscript version arising
