IEEE and IReL expand access to Irish technology research with new transformative OA agreement

IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for humanity, announced that it has reached an open access read and publish agreement with IReL, the Irish licensing consortium.

The transformative read and publish agreement enables corresponding IReL authors to publish open access articles in IEEE’s industry-leading journals and provides continued reading access to over five million documents from the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. The agreement also makes it more convenient for authors affiliated with Irish universities to publish open access articles with IEEE as eligible authors pay no article processing charges (APCs): these costs are covered by IReL under the agreement.
