The Institution of Engineering and Technology has started an Open Access publishing partnership with Wiley earlier this year and will transition all its journals to fully gold Open Access from 2021.
IET journals will transfer to the IET Engineering & Technology Hub on the Wiley Online Library and will be made free to access. This applies to all articles published in all volumes from 2013 onwards.

arXivLabs have added a new tab allowing researchers to publish code along with their paper. You can activate the Code tool on the arXiv abstract record page. It allows researchers to use and build upon the work quickly and easily. All data of articles with code is freely available and is licensed under CC-BY-SA.
The Max Planck Society has established a new transformative open access agreement with Nature which allows corresponding Max Planck authors to publish open access in Nature and other Nature Research journals (except Nature Review journals) under a Creative Commons license (CC-BY); under the agreement, the article processing charges will be paid centrally by the MPS.
It also covers read access to all Nature journals (incl. new launches).
The agreement will be in effect from January 1, 2021. Articles published online after January 1, 2021 are eligible – relevant is the online publication date.
