The Association for Computing Machinery Launches ACM OPEN, a New License Model

The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) is pleased to announce its new "read and publish" license model, ACM OPEN. The new model allows an institution's corresponding authors to publish an unlimited number of accepted research articles Open Access in the ACM Digital Library (, and to retain the traditional access to the rest of the platform's subscription contents. The license also provides for automatic deposit by ACM of all accepted research articles into the institution's repository. More than 60 institutions worldwide have already signed ACM OPEN licenses (full current list is here). More information about ACM OPEN may be found here.
