Open access agreement for authors at eligible SANLiC institutions

Your institution wants you to publish open access

Wiley and SANLiC have an agreement which allows eligible authors to publish open access without paying an article publication charge (APC). The cost of publishing is covered under the terms of the agreement.

Corresponding authors affiliated with participating SANLiC institutions may publish gold open access in any fully open access or hybrid journal, at no charge. By choosing gold open access an article is immediately and freely available for all to read, download and share.
