Author eligibility: Is in line with licence terms - all current UNSW researchers including HDR candidates. 

Information for authors: ASME Journals may charge other page and colour fees, and these are the responsibility of the author. Please refer to the publisher site for further information. For journal response times between submission and acceptance you should check the specific journal guidelines for accurate information.

Eligible article types: Peer reviewed research articles.

Acceptance date: 1 January 2024 to 31 December 2024.

Number of included articles: This agreement is uncapped.

How to submit your article for open access publishing: 

  1. The UNSW corresponding author should follow the usual article submission process via the ASME Journal Tool.

  2. On acceptance of the article, the publisher will ask the corresponding author to complete a form (publishing agreement).

  3. On acceptance of the manuscript, the payment system will allow UNSW corresponding authors to choose UNSW as their institution and remove the open access fee. Articles from authors at participating institutions will be published under a CC BY licence.

  4. To comply with the Open Access policy the UNSW corresponding author will need to retain the rights to either the Published Version of Record or Author Accepted Manuscript, and deposit into UNSWorks using a CC BY licence.

Corresponding authors should not use personal email addresses (e.g. Hotmail, Gmail) or email addresses affiliated with other organisations, research centres or institutes. Otherwise they may be ineligible under the terms of this agreement.
