American Computing Machinery – ACM



This publisher allows part of the amount paid by FCT under the contract to be used for the publication of articles in golden open access in hybrid publications. This value varies over the term of the agreement depending on the APC value of articles published by corresponding authors of institutions present in the b-on in the immediately previous year.

ACM will also apply a 10% discount on APC prices applicable to the publication of articles in gold open access journals published by authors of b-on institutions during the term of the agreement (2019-2021).

With regard to articles not published under the golden open access regime, authors may deposit a pre-print version of the article in the Institutional Repository with a 12-month embargo period indicating the DOI of the definitive version available on the ACM website.
