International Conference Proceedings Series
IMPORTANT NOTE: A new Open Access publishing model has been introduced for ICPS in 2024. Please review the details here. If your conference posted their Call for Papers on or after January 1, 2024, the following options do not apply.
Please note that pricing for the following “optional” services is separate from the mandatory proceedings volume production and incidental charges.
ACM offers ICPS conference organizers the ability to make the full-text contents of their conference proceedings available on an Open Access basis via the conference’s website utilizing ACM’s OpenTOC service and via the ACM Digital Library (on a limited basis) utilizing ACM’s OpenConference service. Each of these services is described below:
a) OpenTOC – ACM will provide an HTML version of the table of contents of the proceedings for posting on an event’s designated website(s). The HTML file provides those visiting the event’s designated website(s) with ACM and its Author-Ized links enabling direct and free perpetual full-text access and downloads from the ACM Digital Library. Please note that those visiting ICPS published articles in the ACM Digital Library without utilizing “Author-Izer” links will still require authenticated access.
b) OpenConference – ACM will make all full-text articles of the Event Organizer’s proceedings freely available for full-text download directly from the ACM Digital Library platform for the duration of the related event.
Pricing for the optional OpenTOC and OpenConference tiered Open Access fee structure is below.
- Tier 1: $2,500.00 USD for all volumes containing up to 30 articles.
- Tier 2: $5,000.00 USD for all volumes containing 31-75 articles.
- Tier 3: $7,500.00 USD for all volumes containing 76-100 articles.
- Tier 4: $10,000.00 USD for all volumes containing 101+ articles.
OpenConference+ – For a flat $1,000 USD proceedings volume fee, ACM will make all full-text articles of the Event Organizer’s proceedings freely available for full-text download directly from the ACM Digital Library platform for a full two weeks (2) beginning on the first day of your event.
