Wiley Journals comply with new open access policies of UK funders

The majority of Wiley’s journals in its open access publishing program now offers authors funded by The Wellcome Trust and Research Councils UK the opportunity to publish their articles under a Creative Commons Attribution CC BY license when paying an Article Publication Charge (APC).  This now supports authors in complying with funder requirements that came into place 1 April 2013. The CC BY license allows others to modify, build upon and/or distribute the licensed work (including for commercial purposes) as long as the original author is credited.  

“Enabling RCUK and Wellcome Trust funded researchers to continue publishing in the journals of their choice is very important to us,” said Rachel Burley, Vice President and Director, Open Access. “Wiley is a strong supporter of sustainable open access and is committed to meeting the needs of authors and their research funders.”

Wiley has also updated its self-archiving policy for RCUK authors. If an author funded by RCUK chooses to publish in a Wiley journal but doesn’t select and pay for OnlineOpen they will be able to self-archive the accepted version of the article after a 12 month embargo period (starting with first publication online), or after a 24 month embargo for authors funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). If a journal does not offer an open access option the embargo period is reduced to 6 months (RCUK’s STM Councils) or 12 months for authors funded by AHRC and ESRC. 

A limited number of society owned journals have not adopted the new self-archiving policy and/or the new OnlineOpen license policy and will continue to publish under the usual journal copyright license terms.

Wiley extends open access license choice for authors publishing OnlineOpen

Wiley will be changing the choice of licensing arrangements available to authors in its open access publishing program. Wiley’s open access publishing program includes Wiley Open Access,  society partner open access journals and the OnlineOpen option available to authors in over 80% of Wiley’s subscription journals.

In determining its choice of licensing options, Wiley has taken into account specific requirements at an article, journal and discipline level as well as addressing the various needs of authors, funders and our publishing partners. 

From April 1, 2013 the majority of Wiley’s journals* in the open access program will offer authors funded by The Wellcome Trust and members of the Research Councils UK (RCUK) the opportunity to publish their articles under a Creative Commons Attribution  CC BY license. The CC BY license allows others to modify, build upon and/or distribute the licensed work (including for commercial purposes) as long as the original author is credited.  This will support authors in complying with funder Wellcome Trust and Research Councils UK requirements that will come into place at that time.

For all other authors, the choice of licensing arrangements has been extended, with a choice of Creative Commons licenses available to authors publishing open access under Wiley’s OnlineOpen option.  The majority of Wiley’s journals* in Wiley’s open access publishing program will offer one of the following licensing arrangements to authors:

When selecting OnlineOpen, authors, their funding agencies, or their institutions, pay an Article Publication Charge (APC), to ensure that the article is made available to non-subscribers upon publication via Wiley Online Library, as well as deposited in PubMed Central (PMC) and PMC mirror sites.

For more information visit our Open Access Policies Page.

*a limited number of society-owned journals have opted out of this new license policy and will continue to offer OnlineOpen under the usual journal copyright license terms.

OnlineOpen, Wiley’s Hybrid Open Access Publishing Option, Improved Service

OnlineOpen: Our hybrid model enables authors to make their article fully open in a subscription journal thus providing choice for authors to publish open access in the journal of their preference.  With OnlineOpen the author, the author’s funding agency, or the author’s institution pays a fee to ensure that the article is made available to non-subscribers upon publication via Wiley Online Library, as well as deposited in PubMed Central.
 
OnlineOpen was launched in 2004 and over the years has had limited uptake from our authors.  During 2012 we have seen a change in this trend and more authors are selecting the OnlineOpen option for their articles. 
 
This week we have upgraded our systems supporting OnlineOpen to ensure that articles are made immediately open access automatically on Wiley Online Library as soon as payment is received.  These improvements will ensure that we provide a better and faster service  for OnlineOpen.  At the same time Wiley staff now have better visibility on the status of OnlineOpen orders so we can provide quick responses on order progress queries from our customers.
 
Work continues on updating our OnlineOpen processes and systems as we strive to provide the best possible service to our authors.  For example, we are currently working on improving the delivery of articles to PubMed Central for open access archiving.
