Voluntary open access contribution and reprints

The IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies is an online-only title whose issues become "open access" (meaning they become free for all readers to download) 12 months after their original posting date. This publication model is called "delayed open access."

In order to offset the costs associated with this model, the IEEE Computer Society respectfully suggests that all authors who publish in TLT consider offering a Voluntary Open Access Contribution. Our suggested amount is $300 for the first page and $100 for each subsequent page of the published version of the article, but any amount you choose to contribute will be appreciated. The contribution can be paid by the author's institution or by the authors personally. Payment is neither obligatory nor is it a prerequisite for publication.

Your contribution may be tax deductible. The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Incorporated (IEEE Computer Society) is an organization qualified under US Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3) and is eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions in the United States. For other countries, please check with your local tax advisor regarding tax deductibility of charitable contributions.

ORCID Required: All IEEE journals require an Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) for all authors. ORCID is a persistent unique identifier for researchers and functions similarly to an article's Digital Object Identifier (DOI). ORCIDs enable accurate attribution and improved discoverability of an author's published work. The author will need a registered ORCID in order to submit a manuscript or review a proof in this journal.
