Open access agreement for authors at eligible Irish institutions

Publish open access with Wiley

Beginning 15 March 2021, authors affiliated with Irish institutions participating in Wiley’s IReL agreement may publish primary research and review articles in any of Wiley’s fully gold open access journals or Wiley’s subscription journals which offer open access with no further open access costs* to the author.

To publish without having to pay additional Article Publication Charges (APCs), the article's corresponding author must be from a participating Irish institution and the article must have been accepted on or after 1 January 2021.

To be eligible:

  • Your manuscript must have been accepted on or after 1 January 2021
  • You must be the corresponding author who is affiliated with a participating Irish institution at the time of acceptance of your article
  • You must publish open access in a fully gold OA journal or a hybrid (subscription) journal that offers open access
  • Primary research and review articles qualify1
  • If publishing in a hybrid (subscription) journal, you must order open access at the point of acceptance by using our order workflow as described below2
  • This agreement cannot be used to cover additional charges (e.g. cover, color, and page charges), which individual journals administer separately.
