AIP Publishing Signs Read & Publish Agreement with Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú

Melville, NY -- February 13, 2023. AIP Publishing is delighted to announce it has signed a three-year Read and Publish agreement with Pontificia Universidad Catlica del Per (PUCP), advancing its support of Open Access across the physical sciences.

Setting a milestone as one of AIP Publishing's first Read & Publish agreements in Latin America, the deal facilitated by Accucoms runs from through December 2025 and grants PUCP researchers unlimited read access to two dozen journals in the AIP Publishing portfolio as well as the ability to publish open access in five of our journals. Through this agreement, the article processing charges (APCs) required to publish open access are covered by the license fees paid by the PUCP library, making OA publishing more accessible to researchers.

"I am proud to have facilitated this agreement between Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Peru, one of the most prestigious Peruvian universities, and AIP Publishing," said Julia Rebuzzi, Accucoms Regional Manager for Brazil, Argentina, and Peru. "PUC Peru has been a subscriber to AIP journals for years now, and it is exciting to see them move to a Read and Publish agreement with AIP for 2023, being pioneers for this kind of agreement in the country and being among the first institutions in Latin America benefiting from transformative and publishing agreements".

"We are thrilled to continue our efforts in Latin America through this agreement with Pontificia Universidad Catlica del Per," said Penelope Lewis, AIP Publishing's Chief Publishing Officer. "Open Access publishing is foundational to so much of the incredible research being put forth from institutions around the world right now, and we are proud to be part of that effort alongside PUCP."
