As of 2019, corresponding authors from German institutions can publish their own primary research and review articles open access under the agreement with Projekt DEAL, retaining copyright of their works.
Wiley will not charge fees to authors covered by the agreement. The Publish and Read (PAR) fee for publications in hybrid journals and the APCs for publications in gold OA journals* related to the agreement are paid centrally via Projekt DEAL and the participating institutions.

Please note that as a requirement of the Projekt DEAL agreement, the statement ‘Open Access funding enabled and organized by Projekt DEAL’ will be added automatically to the acknowledgment section of your paper. This information is for identification purposes only to help assign your article to the correct institution should you select the open access option, and it will not affect any information in the published article.
Please contact your university or library with questions.

2If you are no longer affiliated with an eligible German institution at the point of acceptance of your paper, you do not qualify.
