Open access agreement for authors at eligible Portuguese institutions

Publish open access with Wiley

Many authors affiliated with Portuguese institutions may publish open access in any of Wiley's hybrid journals at no charge to the author.

Corresponding authors affiliated with Biblioteca do Conhecimento Online (b-on) may publish without having to pay Article Publication Charges (APCs).

Update May 2024

The open access funding agreement between B-On and Wiley has exhausted for this year. Between now and 31 December 2024, you may still choose to publish open access, but the publishing fee will not be covered by the agreement. For more information, contact the open access team at your institution.

You can be confident that by choosing open access your work has the best chance to be read, cited and shared. Read more about the advantages of publishing open access here.

1Eligibility is subject to when the institution has formalized their participation in the agreement. If you are no longer affiliated with an eligible institution at the point of acceptance of your paper, you do not qualify.

2Other article types e.g. letters, editorials etc. are excluded.

3If you don't order open access initially, your manuscript will be published under the traditional closed access model. You may order open access retroactively, but once your paper is published in Early View or In Issue online you are no longer eligible to publish open access at no charge.
