Newcastle University has arranged pre-payment to IEEE for a small number of article processing charges (APCs). The APCs can be used to publish RCUK funded research papers in IEEE journals. To check if your paper is eligible for funding please check our open access webpages http://www.ncl.ac.uk/openaccess/open-access.
If you have any queries about Open Access at Newcastle University please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

To further meet the Route 2 requirements, the submissions should include the following text in the funding acknowledgement section of the manuscript and any cover note accompanying the submission:
