Press Release

Journal Finder

IOP Publishing (IOPP) has now entered a new collaboration with ChronosHub to simplify their open access publishing. The initial phase of the collaboration includes a free-to-use IOPP Branded Journal Finder, which enables authors to easily check if the IOPP journal they have chosen to publish their work in complies with their funder or institutional requirements.

IOPP Journal Finder makes institutional, and consortia level open access (OA) agreements and funders’ OA policies more transparent for authors. The partnership is aligned with IOPP’s ambition to make universal access to research a reality whilst delivering optimal author experience and service excellence. To date, 91 journals, of which 85 offer an OA route to publication, can be filtered by subject area, license and embargo period. Authors can also see potential eligibility for OA funding under transformative agreements negotiated by their institution or consortium. 

We believe that the future of academic publishing is open. We’re working with ChronosHub to see how the Journal Finder can help us realise this vision by enhancing transparency around OA publishing whilst improving the discoverability and impact of research published with us.

Miriam Maus, Director of publishing at IOPP

It is great to see our shared mission come to life promoting open science and maximise automation to let researchers focus their time on research. Journal Finder will support all authors with the clear guidance they’ve been looking for to publish in compliance with their funders’ OA policies, and institutional agreements.

Christian Grubak, founder and CEO at ChronosHub

Throughout the collaboration, IOP Publishing and ChronosHub will monitor usage and collect feedback from the community to further optimise the author experience.
