Lehigh University Libraries have signed a pilot transformative Open Access (OA) agreement with ACM, the Association for Computing Machinery. ACM OPEN is a “read and publish” agreement that grants the Lehigh community access to all ACM journals and proceedings while making all articles with a Lehigh-affiliated corresponding author in those publications openly available at the time of publication.
This pilot program, a first for Lehigh University Libraries, allows all active, Lehigh-affiliated corresponding authors to publish open access immediately with all ACM journals and conference proceedings at no cost to the authors. Readers anywhere in the world will be able to access Lehigh University scholars' ACM publications immediately. Importantly, Lehigh University affiliated-authors must be sure to be listed as the corresponding author and use their @lehigh.edu email address in the publication process to ensure their research article is Open Access.
To take advantage of this agreement, Lehigh authors must be listed as the corresponding author and use their @lehigh.edu email address.
Below is a brief summary of author instructions. For full guidance, please download and review the document entitled "ACM Author Workflow Journey 2022."
