International Open Access Week: Wiley’s participation

oaweekLast week (Oct 21-25) was International Open Access Week.  We spent the week particpating in discussion and sharing information. In cased you  missed anything, here is a summary of our week.

The results of  Wiley’s open access survey of 8000+ authors were published.  You can read a summary of the results on our Exchanges blog site.

We created a data visualization tool so that users can drill into the data by research experience, region, and subject area.

We also produced this infographic which shows key results from our author survey alongside OA results from our librarian survey (conducted in May) as well as Wiley’s own experiences of where authors who choose to publish OA are coming from.

We wrote about the effect that funder mandates are having on the take-up of Wiley’s OA offerings.

Also, during this International Open Access week, we announced the transition of four leading journals from the subscription model to Gold OA from January 2014, bringing the total number of Wiley’s open access titles to 28.

You can also read a comment here from Helen Bray about the role of open communications from publishers in the open science movement.
