Washington State University has joined an open-access publishing model with the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society. The agreement will ensure that articles and proceedings papers authored by WSU-affiliated personnel are published under an open-access license.

ACM delivers resources that advance computing as a science and a profession, according to its website. ACM provides the computing field’s premier Digital Library and serves its members and the computing profession with leading-edge publications, conferences and career resources.

The publishing model, called ACM OPEN, has been adopted by more than 30 other institutions around the world to date. Under the ACM OPEN agreement, faculty and students will continue to receive unlimited access to all articles in the ACM Digital Library.
