Open Practices

Wiley is committed to moving towards greater openness and reproducibility of research. We aspire to do this by increasing transparency of the research process and products, 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 the benefits of Registered Reports in the following blog posts:


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.

Transparent Peer Review

Wiley is committed to increasing transparency in peer review, making it clear to readers the how, what, and why behind editorial decision-making, and we follow a rigorous process to maintain the highest of standards. We are actively exploring various working models to give researchers the option for better peer review and improved accountability, recognition, and reward.
