Wiley and Jisc Announce 2 Year Pilot Open Access Agreement
17 December 2014. Hoboken, New Jersey.
"John Wiley and Sons has announced a pilot agreement, brokered by
Jisc, for articles published on an open access basis.
The agreement follows discussions, between Jisc, Wiley and the UK
library community, and will enable greater support for universities
during the transition to open access.
Running from January 2015 to December 2017, the agreement provides
credits for article processing charges (APCs) to universities that
license Wiley journal content under the terms of the Jisc journal
agreement. This means that universities that pay both subscription
charges for publications and fees to make articles open access will
receive APC credits based on the total prior year spend. The APC
credits will be available when publishing in the Wiley Open Access
journal publishing program as well OnlineOpen, Wiley’s hybrid open
access option, and reflect Wiley’s commitment to recognizing the total
cost of ownership for UK universities.
Customers need to have a Wiley Open Access Account set up to be
eligible to receive their APC credits. Wiley Open Access Accounts
provide discounts on APCs and the Account Dashboard reduces the
administrative burden on both authors and institutions."
