Architecture: Publish Your Article OA Without APC

This guide will help you with your architectural research

Publish Your Article OA Without APC (Read and Publish Agreements)

Within the scope of Read and Publish agreements, corresponding authors affiliated with the IZTECH can publish open access in Wiley, ACS (American Chemical Society), and ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) Digital Library journals without the article processing charge (APC).

Read and publish agreements seek to shift the contracted payment from libraries to publishers away from subscription-based reading and towards open-access publishing. 


Open Access Publishing in Wiley Journals

Within the scope of the EKUAL Project carried out by TÜBİTAK ULAKBİM, a “Read & Publish” agreement was signed with Wiley publishing, covering the period 2023-2025.

  • By corresponding responsible authors affiliated with IZTECH, article publication charges (APCs) for “Research Article,” “Review Article,” “Data Article,” and “Rapid Publication” published in Wiley’s Hybrid Journals and Gold Journals (exclude Hindawi) included in Q1, and Q2 of Web of Science (WoS), can be covered as part of TUBITAK’s Read&Publish agreement with Wiley.  Click here to access the list of eligible journals.
  • From January 1, 2023, Wiley hybrid articles that are accepted are eligible, and Wiley fully gold open access articles that are submitted and accepted from January 1, 2023, are eligible.
  • Responsible corresponding authors should use the IZTECH email address when submitting an article for publication to be approved to be published open access with no transactional APCs.

Note:  There is a “national annual OA article publishing quota” within the scope of the agreement. The APC will be offered for the articles on a first-come, first-served basis. If there is a right to publish an AE article in the quota, its approval will be given by ULAKBİM. In the event that the annual OA article publishing quota expires, the author of the relevant publication will have to pay the APC fee himself or the funding agency.

Open Access Publishing ACS Journals

A Read and Publish agreement has been made with the American Chemical Society (ACS), to which we subscribe, through ANKOS (Anatolian University Libraries Consortium). Due to our subscription to ACS Journals, your publications as a corresponding author will be published as open access in ACS journals without the article processing charge (APC). The agreement covers publication in all ACS journals, including ACS OmegaJACS AuACS Au collection, and all ACS hybrid journals. The agreement does not include publishing eBooks or articles that are additions, corrections, or editorials.

Important Details:

1) the submitting corresponding author must indicate affiliation to our institution by selecting the institution from the dropdown list in their Paragon Plus profile. The submitting corresponding author must be identified as the individual who is to communicate with ACS throughout the peer review process, and

2) the submitting corresponding author should utilize their university email address in their Paragon Plus profile to better assist the agreement administrator in determining qualification.

Corresponding authors meeting all of the criteria mentioned above will be referred to as “qualifying authors.” As a qualifying author, a funding request will be automatically generated at the time of manuscript acceptance. You will receive a notification from Copyright Clearance Center once action is taken on the funding request.

When completing the Journal Publishing Agreement, your manuscript should be identified as belonging to the agreement. ​If the manuscript is not identified as belonging to the agreement or if you have problems with the open access publication of your article, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at .
