ACM has signed new open access agreements with four major institutional clients: the University of California (UC), Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and Iowa State University (ISU).
The three-year agreements include access to and open access publication in ACM's journals, proceedings, and magazines, and mark the first transformative open access agreements for the association.
The agreements will continue unrestricted and unlimited access to all ACM Digital Library articles for the institutions' faculty and students, and ACM will deposit papers into institutional repositories for all co-authors from those universities.
Authors also will be able to retain more rights when publishing with ACM under the agreements.
UC Berkeley's Jeff MacKie-Mason said, "We can—and will—work with publishers of all sizes to navigate the transition to open access so that researchers and the public have free and immediate access to the world's knowledge."
