All articles accepted for publication in Springer journals and authored by an individual affiliated with UCAR/NCAR will be made freely available by Springer through their "Open Choice" program. Springer has waived Open Access fees for UCAR/NCAR authors, and as a result all users on SpringerLink will be able to access UCAR/NCAR authored publications. Springer also allows for fulltext articles by UCAR/NCAR authors to be made available through OpenSky, the institutional repository for NCAR, UCAR, and UCP.
If you have any questions about this process, or if you have had an article recently published by Springer, please feel free to contact the OpenSky repository team at email@example.com. We'll make sure your article gets Open Access status!
