UWE, Bristol 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 contact the Library’s Research Support Team at lib.rke@uwe.ac.uk.

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:
