Blackwell Publishing

NIH Public Access Mandate

Wiley-Blackwell will support our authors by posting the accepted version of articles by NIH grant-holders to PubMed Central upon acceptance by the journal. The accepted version is the version that incorporates all amendments made during peer review, but prior to the publisherís copy-editing and typesetting. This accepted version will be made publicly available 12 months after publication. The NIH mandate applies to all articles based on research that has been wholly or partially funded by the NIH and that are accepted for publication on or after April 7, 2008.

For NIH employees only, we will accept the NIH Publishing Agreement.

The societies for whom we publish may decide on a different policy. We will continue to brief them on any discussions that we have with the NIH regarding the processing of the articles, appropriate acknowledgements with citation and linking to the final published version on the publisherís site, and clear licensing terms and conditions for the use of copyrighted material.

Wiley-Blackwell will also continue to consult directly with authors, editors and society partners to determine how we as their publisher may best support them going forward.

In addition, Wiley-Blackwell offers its OnlineOpen service. Upon payment of the OnlineOpen, we will deposit the published version of the article into PubMed Central, with public availability in PubMed Central and on the journal’s website immediately upon publication.
