Wiley-Blackwell and Open Access

Wiley-Blackwell supports any business model that is financially sustainable and scalable, and is able to maintain quality and the stewardship of the authoritative version of record. Together with a number of our society partners, we are exploring and embracing open access options more fully. Wiley-Blackwell currently offers the following open access options to complement its subscription publishing:

  • OnlineOpen; a hybrid open access option for over 700 journals. See here for more information.
  • Wiley Open Access; a program of fully open access journals. See here for more information.

We are also proactively involved in initiatives offering training and free or low cost access to current journals and other resources in developing countries, including INASP, HINARI, AGORA and OARE. Wiley was among the "founding fathers" of these last three United Nations agency sponsored programs, now collectively called Research4Life.

OnlineOpen

OnlineOpen is available to authors of primary research articles who wish to make their article available to non-subscribers on publication, or whose funding agency requires grantees to archive the final version of their article. With OnlineOpen the author, or a funding agency or institution, pays a fee to ensure that the article is made available to non-subscribers.

For more details on participating in the program, see OnlineOpen.

Wiley Open Access

Wiley Open Access is a publishing program designed to drive quality, peer -reviewed publishing with speed and efficiency through open access publication. The program of fully open access journals launched in early 2011; please visit the Wiley Open Access website for a list of available journals.

Funding Agency Open Access Payments and Policies


Telethon Italy

Telethon has implemented an Open Access Policy, requiring that all grant holders must deposit their research papers in UK PubMed Central (UK PMC). Authors can comply with the Telethon open access policy when publishing in any Wiley Open Access journal or by choosing the OnlineOpen option which is available on many Wiley-Blackwell journals.

For Telethon-funded authors payment for OnlineOpen or Wiley Open Access publication charges will be paid directly by Telethon with no charge payable by the author.

If an author submits an article to a journal that is not currently included in the OnlineOpen program, and the author wishes to opt for OnlineOpen, we will be able to give immediate open access to the published version and deposit in PubMed Central under this payment arrangement with the above funder. In such cases, when the article has been accepted for publication, the author should inform the editorial office about his or her intention to make this OnlineOpen.

National Institutes of Health

NIH funded authors are subject to a mandate requiring deposit of the accepted versions of their articles into PubMed Central, with those versions to be made publicly available within twelve months from publication of the final article.

Wiley-Blackwell will support our authors by posting the accepted version of articles by NIH grant-holders to PubMed Central upon acceptance by the journal. The accepted version is the version that incorporates all amendments made during peer review, but prior to the publisher's copy-editing and typesetting. This accepted version will be made publicly available 12 months after publication. The NIH mandate applies to all articles based on research that has been wholly or partially funded by the NIH and that are accepted for publication on or after April 7, 2008.

NIH authors also are invited to take advantage of our OnlineOpen offering. With OnlineOpen, Wiley-Blackwell will deposit the final, published version of the article into PubMed Central. Such articles are made publically available on PubMed Central without delay. The article will also be made freely available on the journal's official site. Payment information for participating journals may be found on the journal's homepage. If an NIH-funded author submits an article to a journal that is not currently included in the OnlineOpen program, and the author wishes to pay the fee and participate, the author should inform the editorial office about his or her intention, and arrangements will be made by Wiley-Blackwell.

Some societies for whom Wiley-Blackwell publishes may set different policies for their journals. Please consult the homepage for each journal to check for any such policies.

Howard Hughes Medical Institute

The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) and Wiley-Blackwell have agreed to make post-peer reviewed author manuscripts of articles funded by HHMI publicly available six months following final publication. This policy will be implemented for those articles published after October 1, 2007. Wiley-Blackwell will deposit the author's accepted manuscript, i.e. the post-peer-reviewed and accepted but not edited and typeset version, of original research articles on which any HHMI investigator is an author, to PubMed Central (PMC). This arrangement requires nothing of the grantee; identification and deposit are the responsibility of the publisher.

No changes are required to your copyright agreement.

Wellcome Trust

The Wellcome Trust announced in 2006 that all grant holders must make their research papers freely available through PubMed Central (PMC) and UK PubMed Central (UKPMC) as soon as possible, and in any event, within six months of publication.

Authors can comply with the open access policy when publishing in any Wiley Open Access journal or by choosing the OnlineOpen option which is available on many Wiley-Blackwell journals. Wiley-Blackwell will deposit the final PDF and XML of the article; this is the final, authoritative version of the article, after peer review, editing, any final corrections, online and print formatting, and publication. If a Wellcome-funded author submits an article to a journal that is not currently included in the OnlineOpen program, and the author wishes to pay the fee and participate, we will be able to accept such a payment to give immediate open access to the published version and deposit in PubMed Central. In such cases, when the article has been accepted for publication, the author should inform the editorial office about his or her intention to make this payment.

No changes are required to your copyright agreement.
