Access in license agreements

Resources not included here do not contain any concrete specifications in the license agreement
possibilities to publish Open Access for authors from member institutions.

The general Open Access conditions are usually available on the publisher’s website.

  • The discount is valid for a paying author, usually a corresponding author from a member institution

ACS - American Chemical Society

  • Consortium members have a USD 250 discount (consortium discount)
  • If the author is also a ACS member, they receive a discount of 500 + 250 = USD 750 - see Combo - Membership and Affiliation

    that are members of the CzechELib consortium
  • Eligible journals: fully OA titles and hybrid titles v within subscription collections of individual institutions (title list in collections; their status can be checked at the publisher’s website)
  • Publication type: research article, review, brief report, case report, and rapid communications article

    and automatically waives the publication fee

    of the CzechELib consortium
  • Eligible journals: fully OA titles and hybrid titles in the subscription collections of individual institutions (list of titles in the collection)

IEEE -  Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers

  • 10 APC vouchers for consortium members in 2019 (transfer from 2018 plus conversion
    of the negotiated amount into vouchers). Another 4 vouchers every year (from 2020)
    or the whole consortium (i.e., all the institutions) on a “first come, first served” basis.
    The redemption of a voucher on behalf of an institution must be confirmed to CzechELib
    by an authorized person from such a member institution
  • The vouchers from 2018 to 2021 have all been redeemed. Requests are processed via RightsLink. The institution must be identified via a RingGOLD ID (the authorized persons have it available
    or can request it at info@czechelib.cz), after which the CzechELib consortium can be selected
    as the financing method
  • After the APC vouchers have been redeemed, the IEEE offers a 5% discount which, however,  acan only be applied if the drawing is done through the consortium (CzechELib) account.
    There is currently no way to secure this financially, and this discount is therefore not applicable

    Brno University of Technology 5
    Czech Technical University in Prague 4
    VSB - Technical University of Ostrava 3
