Open access agreement for authors at eligible Norwegian institutions

Publish open access with Wiley

Corresponding authors from a Norwegian institution participating in the Sikt agreement may publish primary research and review articles open access in any of Wiley's fully gold open access journals or subscription journals that offer open access (hybrid journals ) at no cost to the author. Through this agreement the participating institutions will cover the publication charges (APCs) for open publishing.

Open access publishing at Wiley under this agreement complies with the Norwegian Government’s National goals and guidelines for open access to research articles and the European joint initiative OA2020.
