ACM Free Open Access Publishing
ABOUT THE AGREEMENT
EIFL has negotiated a free read & publish agreement for the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) hybrid and open access journals and conference proceedings for authors from eligible EIFL countries. This means that corresponding authors from these countries will not have to pay any Article Processing Charges (APCs) when they publish a research article in open access in one of approximately 70 ACM journals published annually and in ACM conference proceedings volumes.
TERMS & CONDITIONS
The agreement is valid for ACM’s fully open access and hybrid journal titles and conference proceedings.
Below are the agreed terms:
- No Article Processing Charges fees for corresponding authors from: Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Congo, Côte d'Ivoire, Ethiopia, Georgia, Kenya, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Lesotho, Malawi, Moldova, Myanmar, Nepal, Palestine, Senegal, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Zambia, Zimbabwe
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Corresponding authors from Eligible Countries will be automatically recognized when submitting their article to an ACM journal or conference proceeding and will be offered the applicable APC waiver.
When the corresponding author submits an eligible country name as their correct country affiliation, they will automatically be processed through the ‘read and publish’ workflow that will allow them to retain author copyright and place CC-BY author rights on the article.

You can view the title list here. This title list will be updated twice a year, no later than 31 July and 31 January each year. The current list was confirmed on 5 January 2023.
