Open access agreement for authors at eligible OhioLINK institutions

Your institution wants you to publish open access

Wiley and OhioLINK have an agreement which allows eligible authors to publish open access without paying an article publication charge (APC). The cost of publishing is covered under the terms of the agreement.

Corresponding authors affiliated with participating OhioLINK institutions may publish gold open access in any fully open access or hybrid journal, at no charge. By choosing gold open access an article is immediately and freely available for all to read, download and share.

Cleveland Clinic Alumni Library

Corresponding authors of Cleveland Clinic must use their Clinic email address when submitting their article. You may need to update your Wiley profile to do so. Using personal email addresses (e.g. Hotmail, Gmail) will result in delayed review of open access APC coverage requests.
