Open access agreement for authors at eligible Finnish institutions

Publish open access with Wiley

Authors affiliated with participating FinELib institutions may publish primary research and review articles in any of Wiley's and Hindawi's fully gold open access journals or in any of Wiley's hybrid (subscription) journals) that offer open access, at no further charge to the author.

When selecting open access, please note FinELib institutions insist on a CC BY license where available and your institution may not approve the request if you have not selected this license. If the journal does not offer CC BY as standard, please contact your university or library open access team with questions on the best way to proceed.

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.
