Open Science: Sharing is Advancing

Publish open access with ECS

When you choose to publish your research on an open-access platform, you choose to share your work with the scientific community in the spirit of advancing scientific discovery.

ECS, in partnership with IOP, is making it simple for authors to choose open access! If you are fearful of the direct cost of open access article processing charges (APCs), be sure to research ways to reduce or eliminate APCs before submission.

Reduce/eliminate APCs

Authors affiliated with over 1,000 institutions subscribing to ECS Plus qualify for article credits. Check the list of ECS Plus Subscribers to see if your institution is a subscriber.

As a publishing partner of the Institute of Physics Publishing (IOPP), ECS content is included in some Transformative and/or Institutional Open Access Agreements around the globe. To learn if your institution is covered under this type of agreement, consult the IOPP Transformative Agreement home page.

ECS individual and student member benefits include discounts on ECS APCs.

ECS institutional members may also receive article credits.
