Starting from 2015, all papers from IFAC meetings (where IFAC is the main sponsor) are published, in partnership with Elsevier, the IFAC Publisher, in the IFAC-PapersOnLine proceedings series hosted at the ScienceDirect web service. All papers published on the web site can be cited using the series ISSN and the individual paper DOI (Digital Object Identifier).

The IFAC-PapersOnLine series has the following main features:

  • Diamond Open Access – free of charge both for authors and readers.[1]
  • Papers are published under a Creative Commons CC-BY-NC-ND license, and can be shared in many flexible ways.
  • Copyright belongs to the authors, while IFAC gets exclusive publication rights.
  • The IFAC event Organizer Guide has been updated to include some changes in the publication procedures reflecting the new structure. An Editor’s Guide is available for the use of event editors.
  • Papers can be searched, cited, and individually downloaded.
