2023 Brings New Opportunities for Researchers in Mexico

ECS is excited to share that starting on January 1, 2023, all researchers affiliated with the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM), one of the largest universities in Mexico and Latin America, will be able to read ECS content and publish open access in ECS journals at no direct cost to the author. ECS’s publishing partner, IOP Publishing (IOPP), has reached an unlimited transformative agreement with UNAM, which furthers the mission of open science and removes financial barriers that many authors face in their desire to publish their work open access.

recent study shows that over half (53 percent) of physical science researchers want to publish OA but 62 percent say a lack of monies from funding agencies prevents them from doing so. The lack of grant monies from funding agencies is most keenly felt by researchers in South, Central, and Latin America, as well as in India and Pakistan where approximately 80 percent of respondents specified a lack of funds as the main reason for not publishing OA.
