As part of a pilot agreement, corresponding authors affiliated with the University of California may publish open access in any of Wiley's hybrid journals or Wiley's fully gold open access journals1 with institutional support from the UC libraries. The pilot covers articles accepted from January 1 to December 31, 2023.
If you are a corresponding author at any of the ten UC campuses or the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and publish open access in Wiley journals, you will receive an automatic discount of 15% on article processing charges (APCs). Additionally, the UC libraries will automatically pay the first $1,000 of the article processing charge (APC), after the discount. If you do not have research funds available to pay the remaining APC, you can request full funding of the APC from the UC Libraries.

Please contact your university or library with questions.
1For fully open access journals, only Wiley fully open access journals are eligible; Hindawi journal APCs will not be covered as part of the VIVA agreement. You can filter our Open Access APC list to only view Wiley journals.
2If you are no longer affiliated with an eligible institution at the point of acceptance of your paper, you do not qualify
3Other article types e.g. letters, editorials etc. are excluded.
4If 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.
