National University of Defense Technology (NUDT) was founded in 1953 as the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) Military Academy of Engineering, or Harbin Military Academy of Engineering. Grand General Chen Geng was appointed the first president and political commissar. As it was founded, Chairman Mao Zedong personally issued the “precepts” to the university and wrote the title of “Engineering and Learning” for the school journal.
IEEE and DRAA, the Digital Resource Acquisition Alliance of Chinese Academic Libraries, have entered into an open access read and publish agreement. This agreement makes it more convenient for corresponding authors to publish open access articles with IEEE’s industry leading journals and magazines as eligible authors pay reduced article processing charges (APCs) and may have the opportunity to pay no APCs as some of these costs are waived under the agreement.
