Open access publishing in IEEE journals

Articles from FWF-funded projects published in journals that are part of this agreement can be published open access free of charge until the end of 2027 at the latest.

Please note that the criteria listed below must be met. In addition, the following FWF requirements must be complied with:

  • the article must be published with a CC BY licence
  • the acknowledgement must contain the following text:
    This research was funded in whole / in part by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) [grant DOI]. For open access purposes, the author has applied a CC BY public copyright license to any author accepted manuscript version arising from this submission.
    or for German-language publications:
    Diese Forschung wurde gänzlich / teilweise durch den Wissenschaftsfonds FWF finanziert [Grant-DOI]. Zum Zweck des freien Zugangs hat der:die Autor:in für jedwede akzeptierte Manuskriptversion, die sich aus dieser Einreichung ergibt, eine „Creative Commons Attribution CC BY“-Lizenz vergeben.
    Please make sure to enter the grant DOI instead of the project number.
  • Conference proceedings are not part of the agreement with IEEE - for FWF-funded articles in proceedings the following applies: the "Author Accepted Manuscript" may be deposited with the CC BY license in a repository without embargo - not before publication of the publisher's version.
