University and District Library

Publish Open Access with ACM

Open Access

Friday 23 February 2024

The library has already been offering access to the ACM Digital Library for all university members in the campus network and via the library's remote access for many years. The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) will now convert the ACM Digital Library to Open Access over the next few years.

For the period 2024 to 2026, H-BRS has joined the ACM Open model and H-BRS authors can publish their scientific contributions in ACM journals and proceedings at no additional cost.

With this agreement, the library is making a further contribution to Open Access at H-BRS.

Who is covered by this agreement?

If you have submitted an article as Corresponding Author using your H-BRS e-mail address, you will be offered the Open Access option as soon as the submitted article has been accepted.

To which titles does the agreement apply?

Open Access publishing applies to journals and conference proceedings of the Association for Computing Machinery in the ACM Digital Library. An overview of the eligible titles can be found on the publisher's website.

What licenses are available and what do I have to consider?

As a corresponding author, you have the option of selecting the license conditions for publication in an electronic rights form. The standard license is the "non-exclusive permission", with which you and your co-authors retain all rights to your article. We recommend the use of this license.
