ICTP Library & MIT Press D2O


ICTP is now a supporter of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s recent open access publishing initiative, Direct to Open (D2O). Where the traditional method of allowing open access to books is done title-by-title after publication, D2O takes a different path. Through D2O, libraries fund ebooks collaboratively, "one time for the world", so that they are open already upon publication. This also means authors can publish free of charge.

As part of the MIT Press D20 initiative, the ICTP Library will contribute to funding the publication of approximately 90 scholarly monographs in 2022. In addition, approximately 1400 titles in the MIT Press STEM collection are now accessible for the ICTP community via the Library. To learn more about Direct to Open, please contact the ICTP Library.
