Japan: AIP Publishing announces Read and Publish pilot with Waseda University

Waseda University is the first academic institution in Asia to join the pilot scheme.

Waseda University in Tokyo, Japan, has signed an agreement to participate in AIP Publishing’s 'Read and Publish' pilot programme.  

AIP Publishing is a not-for-profit scholarly publisher specialising in the physical sciences.  The pilot programme sees AIP Publishing partnering with institutions around the world to test systems and processes and enable all parties to help shape the solutions that may become standard in scholarly communications in 2020 and thereafter.

Article processing charges (APCs) will be waived for all Waseda University-affiliated corresponding authors whose articles are accepted for publication in any of AIP Publishing's hybrid journals (subscription-based titles that offer an open-access option) for which the university holds current subscriptions.

"The Read and Publish pilot program will provide AIP Publishing and Waseda University with the opportunity to learn more about the benefits and challenges associated with shifting from traditional subscriptions and hybrid APCs to a fully open access model".  

John Haynes, CEO, AIP Publishing.
