Focusing on transparency in research communication and peer review

Sharing how and why we make decisions, holds us accountable for our actions and builds trust within our communities. In addition to creating greater openness of research, we are increasing transparency throughout the publishing process, producing results that others can build on.

Registered Reports

A number of Wiley journals are now accepting Registered Reports. Peer review prior to data collection emphasizes the importance of the research question and the methods. High-quality studies are provisionally accepted, eliminating questionable research practices, including low statistical power, selective reporting, and publication bias. Find out more about Registered Reports with the following:


We help researchers use preprints to accelerate science. Researchers can “preprint” their work on a non-commercial preprint server before they submit it to a journal for peer review. The journals we publish adopt the policies designed to suit the research communities they service - read more about Wiley’s preprint policy.

  • Under Review
    Wiley now offers a new service, Under Review, to streamline the early sharing of research and open up the peer review process. You can now easily showcase your work to the global research community as a preprint while it is under review at a number of Wiley’s journals, before it is accepted or published.

Transparent Peer Review

Wiley is committed to increasing transparency in peer review. In collaboration with Publons and ScholarOne (part of Clarivate, Web of Science), we launched a Transparent Peer Review pilot where peer reviewers’ reports, authors’ responses, and editors’ decision letters are published alongside the accepted articles for participating Wiley journals.
