Many IFIP conferences and events generate proceedings
published by the IFIP publisher. Annually, some 30 to 40 IFIP books are
published with more than 15,000 pages of valuable information. The IFIP Library contains more than 500 books, many of them currently sold by IFIP's publisher and by other book stores, e.g. Amazon.com (search for "IFIP").
IFIP publishes the proceedings of conferences
sponsored by IFIP and books and other documents resulting from
IFIP-sponsored activities. IFIP does not publish proceedings or other
documents from events or activities that are not sponsored by IFIP.
Open Access to IFIP Publications
Open Access to IFIP Publications is currently realized via three channels:
1) The upcoming IFIP Digital Library (https://hal.inria.fr/IFIP/), which currently has the author’s files of IFIP Springer publications (AICT, LNCS, LNBIP) from 2010 till 2015 and more and more earlier proceedings. It also has the references to such
publications up to and including 2017. The first non-Springer publications (IFIP eCollection series) are arriving.
2) Springer Link (https://link.springer.com) for IFIP Springer publications (AICT, LNCS, LNBIP) with free access for all articles 4 years old and older, almost complete back till 2005 and on top many publications back till 1995, when Kluwer became
the official IFIP publisher. NB: Not the “books” are free, but the individual articles. So don’t get confused by the fact that there is a lock on the book
download. Just move on to the table of contents and download the articles individually.
3) The current IFIP Digital Library (dl.ifip.org/) for some non-Springer publications and also Springer publications between 2005 and 2012.
Combined, (almost) all IFIP works published with Springer from ca. 2005 to 3 years old are available for open and free access (one way or the other). In addition many proceedings back till 1995 when Kluwer became the official IFIP publisher are available (NB.: Kluwer, the then official IFIP publisher, was merged into Springer back in 2004).
